Daily Surf Report - 4/9/2015

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." - Melody Beattie

A vibrant sun and light E winds brings a contemplative vibe to the coastal hamlet this morning.  Clouds rapidly dissipating and temps eek up towards 48F.  Low tide conditions along with a modest swell are cause for apparent joy as flocks of early morning surfers are frothing for the micro-peelers.  Smooth ocean and sunshine are abundant and though wave heights are less than alarming, a wave can be ridden today.   

CHANNEL:  Tide swings low and reveals bottom shapes and unknown islands on which to perch and observe the conditions.  Corgis run free as wet sand dominates the current landscape.  A dose of more water may prove beneficial in the Channel proper but keen observation yields flowing shapes at Seadrift that are worth the effort to obtain.  Thigh high rights are in the offering to be ridden and slidden.  Just out front of the boat ramp an emerging left was seen to break and slowly roll shore bound.  Whether it has enough energy to get a longboard moving is an unanswered question this morning.

PATCH:  If you can get SMALL - no I mean really get small, then there are peaking rights out past the meeting rock that are worth exploring.  Smooth and thigh + is size they allow for cruises of consequential distance and nasal trips and drips.  The low tide navigational obstacles are many and vicious but for the micro human they are no problem to avoid.   Hours must pass before enough water arrives to make this spot most palatable, but for now the rides are there for those that surf with care.
