Daily Surf Report - 8/17/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see." - Mark Twain

For many, today is the last day of summer as school starts anew and all vacations come to a close. And for many this is the beginning of a new chapter in life. But it has not all ended quite yet as the ocean greets us this morning with k-k-kombo-ing swells and and glassy conditions. It's as if she wants the summer to end with a bang. Air temps are in the low 60s and bound to heat up later today as winds are light, the water is warm, and waves are breaking in the playful knee to waist range all around. Perfect day for any size log and possibly some shorter boards if you're a grom. The tide is a bit high as of now- hitting the seawall- but waves should be breaking throughout the day as the tide stays at moderate levels. Bring your friends and family, sunscreen, and stoke for today. 

CHANNEL:   The tide is going out slowly this morning as it is still a tad too high. Waves are breaking in the knee range in front of the groin pole as five logs take turns gliding to the inside. Over on the seadrift side there are two logs and one SUP doing the same. Inside Mali-bo seems to be the best in shape as of now, but everything seems to be rideable out there and should stay fairly consistent throughout the day. 

PATCH: Waist high witchery has twelve guys in a trance this morning as the tide is dropping and waves are rolling in fairly consistently. Water levels will start to dwindle as the tide goes out, so maybe grab some breakfast and coffee in the mid morning and wait for the tide to come in. The SW pulses should be coming in throughout the day so don't be hasty and enjoy what the ocean has to offer.
