Daily Surf Report - 8/1/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
“When the world says, 'Give up,' hope whispers, 'Try it one more time.' ” - Unknown

This PSA brought to you today by The Ocean:
Please do not take all the beach sand on your wetsuits, booties and surfboards.  The shop does not want it.  The storm drains do not want it.  The streets do not want it, but the ocean does.  Thank you for your cooperation.

1:00pm Update:  Sun shines brightly and temps are up to 72F!  Surf does remain small but rideable.

Cool, calm and collected morning with no wind and glassy conditions.  Crystals are aligned for positivity and perfection.  Coastal cloudiness which will give way to sun by the afternoon.  Temp is in at 60F and should warm up nicely.  NW windswell in play giving you something to work with in the Channel.  SW groundswell working its way up the coast and may deliver waves later.  Still fun but small waves for your longboarding pleasure today. 

CHANNEL: Middle Groin bar lefts working today in the thigh high size.  Seems to like the NW windswell action and regular waves appearing although not super clean or shapely.  Long rides possible and Mali-Bo bus connection can be made.  Channel bar has SUPers standing around waiting to sweep things clean.  A few waves here and there and size is knee high plus.  Incoming tide push was worthwhile yesterday afternoon. 

PATCH:  Small to nearly flat conditions.  Might see SW swell later today with more water and time.  Empty lineup with double over barnacle waves in play.  Great for kayaks and swimming or the big big board crowd.  Keep one eye open for improvement later.
