Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life." - Omar Khayyam

A fine mist pervades the atmosphere and brings with it the mighty hordes of inspired surfers seeking the Holy Grail.  Temps are 53F and the sun hides behind to coastal overcast for now.  S winds make hats, flannels and beards a must today while also putting a bit of texture upon the water.  Tales and speculation abound as a new very long period S swell arrives and builds.  Still mixing sporadically with a modest NW windswell to create conditions requiring imagination and peaceful contemplation.  None of that will happen today as masses invade and all manner of watercraft and skill level is already on display.  Bo City Rockers in effect.  Find a wave.  Share a wave.  Rip a wave.  Slide a wave.  It is all happening in this moment. 

CHANNEL:  Early morning low tide has the Groin bar minimally breaking with under knee high lefts with little juice or jolt to them.  Boat Ramp reelers peeling off at knee high or better but still lacking the morning punch to really wake things up.  Tide now filling in will start to gain momentum and offer up some Mali-Bo rights to consider as the daily fare.  Now just piecemeal poppers that are being mostly ignored by all but may have later day dimensions worth the price of admission.  

PATCH:  Less than zero water to start the dark morning has toe busting rocks exposed as far as the eye can see.  Preliminary Patch Pulses starting to show at the deeper venues as the S swell arrives and flaunts.  Plenty of water moving around already and chunky at times but not too clean.  The outside bombs detonate then fizzle while the midway peaks have true turning potential once you navigate the flat sections.  Something for everyone today and everyone is here which should make for a fine amalgamation in general.  More water may cause this location to fire and if the winds go slack near EPIC conditions may arise.
