Daily Surf Report - 11/3/2016

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings." - Salvador Dali


Again we seek the nourishment to sustain stoke and fuel passions.  As another day of Fall ambition finds footing we are greeted with classic weather conditions.  Blue, clear and 48F outside.  No wind though the capacity to blow NE exists.  Silken ocean surfaces warbled by a new NW swell in evidence.  The parking lot crowd shows the anticipation and fervor as a steady stream meanders to the water's edge. 

CHANNEL: A notable upturn as NW swell precursor blips and dips follow their prescribed pathway towards shore.  Now as the tide has ebbed and pushes up we find rights along the Groin bar leading one into the Channel or along the primrose path to Mali-Bo.  Lefts in play not as fully charged or engaged quite yet.  Play the game but don't play the fool. 

PATCH: Enough west in the current swell to pique interest and drive demand.  Peaks will protrude, push and pop with enough juice to make logs sing and sway.  Moderate tides will cover all pieces of Gibraltar and allow for mellow slides and "hello" times.

Intermediate Surf Clinic:
This Fall take your surfing to the next level!

Ready to Rip? This is For You!
This 1-day clinic is for those individuals who have taken surf lessons and have been actively surfing for at least 3-6 months. Our intermediate surf clinics introduce special progressive learning techniques so you can improve your style and abilities in the water.
Our Intermediate Surf Clinic is for the late-beginner to intermediate surfer who is really looking to take their surfing to the next level. Our intermediate clinics will help you gain confidence in the waves and improve your surfing skills.
In the clinic you will get the full surf experience in a small group with one of our lead instructors. The day begins with a surf check of the local breaks for best conditions. Surf-spot selection is taught through the eyes of the advanced surfer, taking in to account swell models, tide data, and personal observations. You WILL learn how to decide when and where EXACTLY the best surf will be. Whether ripping the Channel or Nose-riding the Patch you will be ready to surf to your highest level.
Once out in the water, our experienced instructors will help you to "tackle the lineup" and catch waves in any situation. Your surfing will be progressed from &riding to ripping& as we delve into the key surfing concepts such as wave selection, position, the drop, the bottom-turn, top-turn, and cutback.
