Daily Surf Report - 8/16/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
"Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results." - Willie Nelson

Today's report is brought to you by the letter K - which I feel doesn't get much love, but should.  Krackling good morning with no wind, temp of 60F, high clouds and forekasted nice weather.  Kombo swells with NW and SW having a koncurrent meeting and generating rideable surf in town today.  Dropping tide putting a little damper on the fun as water levels exposing a bit more sand and rock than needed.  Still a fun sized mix of surf for longboards of all levels.  Energy remains and there should be surf all day especially if the winds stay light.  Water is extremely warm so no boots, hoods or gloves required - and in some cases no suits!!  Strap on the neoprene, pull out the log, apply sunscreen, hydrate and show some love to the letter K.

CHANNEL:  Outgoing tide about to hit low has it a bit choppy and sectioned out.  There are waves here but you will need to be choosy to find the ones that hold shape and allow for some turns to be made.  Best bet now are the Groin bar corners and a few Mali-Bo insders which are running thigh high or better.  The deeper Channel bar has a few pitchy ones but the low water causing more close outs than fantastically surfable waves. A few korners to be had in general but has been better on the incoming tide later in the day.  

PATCH:  Krushing surf in the almost waist high size this morning.  Water levels dropping so likely time for a coffee break and snack until the tide turnaround starts filling back in.  Inside Snags has good sandbars and fast and fun rights that will take you to the beach and deposit you on the sand with no problemo.  Slide, glide and ride but ABIDE the final kick-out section to save fins.  Outside near the meeting rock the S pulses are best viewed and ridden.  Rights nearing waist high or better that break, reform, back off and roll.  Slopey style waves that are smooth and tip time can be had for the skilled.  Fun stuff in general for the right board and positive mindset crew.  Afternoon and evening water levels are good for sessions into the dark.
