Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Greetings, I am pleased to see that we are different. May we together become greater than the sum of us both.” - Leonard Nimoy

Golden yellow and sherbet orange flashing vibrant hues as the sun wakes in all her morning glory. Gone for now, the wind and rain have moved on elsewhere leaving puddles and scattered leaves behind. Perfect blue sky hanging high with a cold chill starting at 45 and climbing to the low 50’s. Bundled up ocean adventurers crack open the door and step outside to catch a glimpse. Six of one, half a dozen of the other, all here on the same mission. To walk on water and feed the soul.

                                                        

CHANNEL:  Low tide dropping like it’s hot as the W swell signals a yellow caution. Too little water for now for much of anything to get through, leaving a soupy white water mess approaching shore. As the tide turns in the afternoon, rides and slides should start to appear in the knee to thigh range.

PATCH:  Mixed messages being sent and are hard to read as the outside meeting rock stands proudly. Holding onto long sleds with Vulcan mind meld fingertips, unrestricted communication and deep understanding are within reach. Don’t rush, take time and all questions will be answered.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“So whatever you want to do, just do it….Making a fool of yourself is absolutely essential.” - Gloria Steinem

Shrouded in dark gray, windows rattle as trees groan and bend bracing against the falling rain. No trace of sunlight through thick clouds and temps are stuck at 54. Hunkered down as morning walkers choose cars for transport, joining commuters traveling out of town. Open parking along the gateway to the sandy shore, the silence is broken by sounds of power being released from the ocean against the seawall. No rest for the wicked on this Monday.

                                                        

CHANNEL:  W swell lost in ocean motion as the wind rips through with great force. Wild white water near and far, with no shape nor form. Not a day to test Mother Nature. Best to wait and watch safely from in side.

PATCH:  The hiss of the sea // from the hallow of a shell // soft ocean whispers

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Pressure is something you feel when you don’t know what the hell you’re doing.” - Peyton Manning.

Levitating 55* F haze. We're at trough of the tidal decline now and place our trust in regrowth. Salty footprints litter swollen lot. Suits drip into Sunday puddles, further evidence of time well spent. In addition, the WHO, what, when, how, why are left stranded by the weightless at sea. Energies still holding on. Are they slipping away? Go surf.   

                                                        

CHANNEL:  NW beats the low ebb for the patient creature. Some at the torso. Some at the knee. Some near channel proper, and just beyond wall by sea. Sharing is caring.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Opportunities multiply as they are seized.” - Sun Tzu

The storm has passed and a haze of minor consequence falls upon the BO while we find lightened breezes and 46 degrees. Lifted fog, effortless sunshine and a lack of rain has many in good spirits and ready to conquer all that the day presents. New swells under construction are building a foundation for weekend action. As the tide continues to fill the basin, shapes for sliding can and will be had.

                                                        

CHANNEL:  Where yesterday chaos reigned today we find a transcendent calm. Not much of magnitude in the early low tide hours but those with a fluid grasp of time will allow the shapes to reveal themselves. An influx of water will make for activities wholly worth engagement.

PATCH:  I’ve got wheels, I’ve got cutter spray. And a healthy sense of worth. Half of me is gasoline, but the other half’s the surf. So if I wait for a holiday could it stop my fear? To go away on a summer’s day never seemed so clear.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” - Henry David Thoreau

Alternation of precipitation as we are back on the rain train today. SW winds as expected further dampening down the positive vibes that were beginning to flow. Temp tepid at 51F but expectations of sun seem nil this morning. The coastline reveals only unfortunate disappointment and despair for those with slides in mind. Low tide and current guilty breezes blowing in the wrong direction are spoiling the party early. Hold onto hope for changes occur rapidly and new NW swell is poised to strike in the near future.

                                                        

CHANNEL:  Water volumes are low and power reduction is evident. Rideable shapes hard to imagine or conjure in their present form. There is beauty to be found and enjoyed but one must look inward and inland to find it today.

PATCH:  A rocky, sandy shore extending many yards and many directions. Even the most needy of the SUP tribe is absent, which speaks volumes on its own accord. Any activity here will require more water and a stern will to succeed as the winds have other plans for the moment.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“The most violent element in society is ignorance.” - Emma Goldman

Portents of spring as renewed rain fades and clear skies are slowly revealed. Warming sun is manifest though a chill of 43F is current. NE winds will help to provide the heated air for later in the day. Rampant swells running wild with WNW mixes fully approved. Early low tide on the comeback trail and adding water to the stew full of ingredients well blended and tasty. A deep high tide rings in the noon hour and expected swamping and slowing likely to occur.

                                                        

CHANNEL:  Even the untrained eye can spot the sliding opportunities and unleashed potential. Shapes directly out front have the boat ramp attendees aligning spines and chi with low tide exits coming fast and furious. As we work past the shallows, an increase in water will allow for activities worth engagement. The Channel bars seem the secondary option which sometimes contains hidden gems.

PATCH:  With more N and W in the concurrent swells the Patch angle of inception is skewed though not insurmountable. The outside meeting rock beckons early while the standard low tide hazards begin to recede. Benefiting from more water as the minutes pass but a power outage likely upon the highest tide. There are slides and rides for the taking and you can make some of them yours.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Chance favors the prepared mind.” - Louis Pasteur

Fairy floss coated sky with pink and blue tones as the sun emerges from slumber. Chilly to begin at 45 with a slight breeze activating chicken skin and a few white fingers. Humidity high as clouds are on the way bringing rain by late afternoon. For now a reprieve from atmospheric activity as parking is plenty, for spring breakers are else where finding stoke. With a little faith, trust and pixie dust, you too can fly.

                                                        

CHANNEL:  Swampy swollen ocean motion in Channel proper as high tide exceeds expectations. W swell hiding in plain sight and is no match for rising sea water. No wave formation anywhere and no one out using their imagination for now.

PATCH:  Lost boys on the horizon searching for adventure and coming up empty handed. Bobbing bumps and lumps of water mimic what they seek, yet do not appear nor form. For now try wait and hope for the best later.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Let your inner queen’s voice come through loud and clear. Be strong, be authentic, be you, and you’ll do her proud.” - Queen Latifah

Etched shadows growing downward as the suns’ brilliance rises upwards casting golden hues all around. Perfectly still, not a hint of breeze as birds sing from tree tops in unison. Morning commuters reluctantly turn the key towards the daily grind to start the week. Court side spaces partially filled with hangers on, stretching out the last few moments of the weekend. Against the current walking towards the shore to feel the sand between our toes and feed our souls; what a wonderful direction to be in.

                                                        

CHANNEL:  High tide rushing up the boat ramp with force and might. Reflection waves from the wall have more form and strength making water entry tough. WNW swell on the horizon though is unable to get through currently. As tide drops wave formations should appear by noon. Bring a long sled, keep expectations low and good vibes high.

PATCH:  Mushy and slightly lumpy with no shape or size. Just like this mornings organic cottage cheese. With an extra helping of fruit and honey, everything tastes better a little sweet.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“It is when we act freely, for the sake of the action itself rather than for ulterior motives, that we learn to become more that what we were. ” - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Traveling fog, light in color and a cool dampness to the touch, seeps through nooks and crannies as the sun tries to break way. Calm and chill, with outside temps hovering at 45 to start with hopes of climbing warmth by mid-day. Parking games well underway as morning weekend warriors start the search for the pot of gold in a secret spot. Leprechauns working their magic pinching those in black neoprene who can bee seen. Through the gates into sandy heaven, seeing is believing. Decipher the words and read between the lines to understand the true meaning.

                                                        

CHANNEL:  Smooth and glassy on the surface with a hint of W swell at peak high tide. Ocean motion moving forward with purpose, yet too much water to hold form. Practice patience and wait for the perfect moment. Those who ask and believe will receive the greatest benefits.

PATCH:  A gaggling group of Leprechauns out in full force practicing Gaelic left and right, knee slapping in between. Follow the rainbow to the very end and hidden treasures can be yours. Or, you can go hang a door.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Act the way you'd like to be and soon you'll be the way you act. ” - Leonard Cohen

55F with promise of more. Pink sun ball springs from windless land. Light questions everything dew-covered and everything wet answers. Committee of wigless judges gather at the edge of the liquid palace where entropy is everyone’s friend. The essence of the eye is judgement. Order, order, claim the judges! Sea is called to the stand. Judges decree: “Yesterday was preferable. Tomorrow might be worse.” Meanwhile, dissenting jury smiles at the sea and the sea smiles back. From which bench do you sit today?

                                                        

CHANNEL:  At 37°54'15.5"N 122°41'09.1"W, 8:37:32 PST (t=0) a transverse wave from WNW 292° and/or SSW 205° moving across resilient sandy bar plane (X) toward boat ramp (Y) commenced angle phase (y(x,,t)=Asin(kx∓ωt+ϕ)). At t=2, hydrogen and oxygen particles between surface and bottom exhibited harmonic motion with phase angle of sin(6.28ft−1x−1.57s−1t), sufficient to tickle cortices above baseline stokage level for sample size n=9 (3 short inside, 4 long outside, 2, SUP wherever) temporarily ocean-bound humanoids as evidenced by exuberant post dismount flop. Tidal squeeze may add some ease. Join, if possible.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes the conditions perfect.” - Alan Cohen

The lightest haze as we rise while the sun seeks a pathway through. Temps chilled out and down to a brisk 38F finding a necessity for puffy coats. Skies have opened up and are welcoming and blue with cascading good vibes. Winds if they exist are neither felt nor seen. Complexities abound and discovery is in the process. Hope remains even as swells fade for the lower tides brought clarity and consistency. The weekend approaches, time to get the jam started.

                                                        

CHANNEL:  With determination comes a measure of enjoyment though higher morning tides do not play to your favor. The ramp bar remains in fine form with height and duration of minimized degrees. As the tide drops exposure will increase and perhaps a triumphant return of the past evening’s stoke as well.

PATCH:  Morning tide has hidden all rocks and sand fills in the blank spaces. Deep journeys to Africa may result in burning triceps but also special rewards. The inside province now benefiting from a new SW swell of enough magnitude to move logs. Get in and make yourself known.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” - Confucius

Cool and clear with the song of the lonely Whippoorwill in the background. Rising sun with predictions of warmth may yet be another signal that spring is taking hold though we start the morning at 41F. Winds have thankfully calmed and may resume from the E bringing more tepid temps. Large NW swell depreciating throughout the day but still slanted and enchanted with residual powers. A trio dons the suits and boots as something always beats nothing and a dose of stoke can carry the day.

                                                        

CHANNEL:  Splashed with full sunshine and a dropping high tide to set the motion and wheels spinning. A hospitable NW swell of consequential size now in the waning hours while the tide retreats. The pursuit begins out front with the Boat Ramp sandbar a seemingly permanent fixture to contend with. Future fortunes are unpredictable but the now shows signs of an effort rewarded.

PATCH:  Blanket of silence makes me want to sink my teeth in deep. Burn all the evidence of fabricated disbelief. Pull back the curtains, took a look into your eye. My tongue has now become a platform for your lies.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” - Anatole France

Amber sun rising high casting golden warmth below.  Wind warnings flagging for attention this afternoon, yet so far no sign nor trace.  Chilly, not cold, as we begin at 48.  Morning walkers passing by with a spring in their steps and coffee on their minds at the end.  Vacant spaces court side as most are on to the daily grind.  Two lucky ones have prime position and are quenching the thirst they have been longing for.  An extra salty taste to calm the nerves and feed the soul.

                                                        

CHANNEL:  The ocean, she is calm and welcoming visitors today.  W swell less in size, though more shapely and consistent in the knee zone.  Lefts and rights may be had by those who want it most with an extra paddle in effort.  Currently one happy camper out soaking up the sun while waiting for sets to come through.

PATCH:  The far meeting rock is proudly displaying her crown, peeking through briny water lapping by. Seagulls chanting mine, mine, while searching nooks and crannies for breakfast treats.  Once the queen has taken her final bow, water disciples take note, pay respect, and receive gifts of rides and slides in return.

Seagulls chanting mine, mine, while searching nooks and crannies for breakfast treats.  Once the queen has taken her final bow, water disciples take note, pay respect, and receive gifts of rides and slides in return.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“There is another alphabet whispering from every leaf, singing from every river, shimmering from every sky.” - Dejan Stojanovic

Golden yellow and orange hues break the darkness of night as the sun’s brilliance wraps its arms around everything in her sight. Cold temps at 38 without a cloud in the great blue sky. Woodpeckers pecking to the beat of their own drum as deer commute through grassy hills on to greener pastures. Shadows stretching far following behind while wondering towards where the land meets the sea. Smiling faces here, there and everywhere soaking in the vitamin D in its natural form. Through the gate sparkling sand leads the way to what we seek. Sunglasses are the accessory for the day, you can leave the umbrella behind.

                                                        

CHANNEL: WNW swell rolling in at a fast pace. Much cleaner than in recent weeks with sets coming in the thigh range. Sand bars have moved during recent storms creating more shore break formations than A frames in Channel proper. Seadrift side has a bit more face time for those who want the extra paddle. Plenty of choices and crowds are low.

PATCH: Black speckles on the horizon playing hide and seek for the optimal spot and are left chasing their tails. Bigger isn’t always better and inside is the best side for going right or left. Dealers choice for all players today.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“A lot of times people look at the negative side of what they feel they can’t do. I always look on the positive side of what I can do.” - Chuck Norris

Morning wake up arriving early as we spring ahead to welcome longer days and shorter nights. The very first baby step towards warm sunny beach days and briny slide sessions. For now, gray lingers high with a reprieve from the wet stuff and cold temps at 45. Afternoon showers on tap with thunder and lightning; the time is now for any and all outdoor activities. Grab a slicker for those pesky surprise showers, take a deep clear breath to clear out the cobwebs and enjoy the dry moment.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Post-storm surge surf mumbled and jumbled without form and clear direction. Don’t believe everything you read, for buoys are signaling W, though not materializing in real life. Lots of current in the Channel creating a soupy white water froth with no one out in the chaos.

PATCH: Crumbled kernels leftover from yesterdays snack attack are slim pickings this morning. Not enough to fill the void nor keep the hangry at bay. Best to feed the beast on land and try again tomorrow.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Either you repeat the same conventional doctrines everybody is saying, or else you say something true, and it will sound like it’s from Neptune.” - Noam Chomsky

When contents around are swirling and jumbled, shift a gaze to the contents within. Stormy sentiments hang in the air, yet joyous characters (with their feet planted on the ground) run amok. With stories to share, knowledge to swap, and various delights rotating in fruition, today is a day for ground work with friends, new friends, acquaintances, family, strangers and everything in between. Rain to come and go, as dear old friends tend to do; onshore winds stay strong for a full-day cycle; all other contents and information irrelevant.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Even if you know not which is the area we speak of here, it is utterly trivial. Look left for an indication of what is happening to the right; look right to understand what is all around. Nothing shared should be taken for granted but perhaps it is one moment in time where everything shared changes nothing.

PATCH: Children are we // Of the restless sea // Swelling in anger, or sparkling in glee; We follow and race, // In shifting chase, // Over the boundless ocean-space

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Do something wonderful, people may imitate it.” - Albert Schweitzer

The cool of winter not yet over as temps drop to 40F. The sun of an early spring not yet fully bloomed. The clouds of rain unwelcome yet lingering beyond need and restarting lightly. Complexity above and below as we all try to make sense of our surroundings and the signs of nature. Logs are carried to the concrete and rebar entrance to a field of broken dreams. Swells vanish and low tide not helping the cause. Conditions are due to change from moment to moment so take heed and cherish the opportunities given and any stoke shared.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Currently devoid of sliders though do not forsake this corner too soon. As the tide returns so will shapes and the patient amongst us may find the hidden gems. Steely resolve may allow one to luck into a thigh high roller holding the inside line for multiples of seconds. If the afternoon winds do not unravel this could be a worthy lunchtime endeavor.

PATCH: Not much in terms of height but value can come in smaller packages. The early lower tide causing a feast to be fostered from the scraps with provisions adequate to sustain but not satisfy. Those exploring have moved further out to the depths with some finding nourishment to soothe the salty soul.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
”Don’t be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Welcoming blue patches and even beams of sun mingle with grey mist above after another day and night of rain. Freshly soaked and sodden grounds steaming in the 48F airs while the winds remain noticeably calm. Early investigation yields the vision of NW / SW windswells competing for your attention with neither showcasing their finest wares. Low tide making the return but again shifted sands are cause for evaluation. See things through a new light today and hold your perspective close to your heart.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Tide pushing up and adding water to stabilize the stew. Pesky peaks are prevalent but unconcerned with form and with limited function. Seasoned veterans use the eagle’s eye to find whitewater ramps to stir the memory and refresh the juices. Un-enviable shapes that may push the limits at waist high and allow for partitions of slides heading any which way but loose.

PATCH: Ingredients are present but clearly in the hands of the amateur chef, as inconsistency and lack of shape rules the morn. Power looks present from storm related wind surges but the area remains vacant at present. Some determination may yet yield a smile if the horizon holds its promise of better days. Watch the charts and mind the knots as they will determine where and when you fit in.
