Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?." - Robert Schuller

A less frenzied morning as foggy skies and mild winds mix with negative tides to create a contemplative situation.  Sun later.  Temp now 53F.  A solid NW swell remains settled in the area yet presently not really enough water to let all the energy in. Pieces and parts will squeak through the narrow angles to offer up a taste of the main course to follow.  Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day but lunch is when everyone may be finally served.  

CHANNEL:  Negative tides expose sand islands as water washes over the tops and makes for mini ramps on which to push maximum efforts.  Not enough water currently over the Groin bar but Seadrift seekers have paddled off into the foggy depths in search of gold and glory.  Less water works there and likely worth the effort to explore.  Out in front of the boat ramp lies a few left angled waves that will propel you forward on the longer of boards.  The lineups are thin and occupied only by the daring and desperate this morning.  The tide is on the fill and will allow this area to expand in both wave opportunities and population.  Current wave size is thigh high.
 *ps - mind the afternoon rip as tidal suckout will occur. 

PATCH:  Low tide slides to be had.  Use all the exposed rocks to find the proper vector and align yourself with the white seal.  Follow his lead over sandy bottoms to reveal micro-slides of smooth faces reaching thigh high in level.  Avoid the boiling boulders as you glide right towards the graffiti wall in search of cross steps and toe tips over.  Waves pop up from the depths to deliver a mild mix that will put a smile on your face while others wait and watch tides fill.  Look for more water to dramatically improve the potential but also look within yourself today and find maximum positivity.
