Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.” - Indira Gandhi

The rising sun brings both warmth and joy to the early villagers. Clouds burning off and temps in the mid 50s with no winds to speak of. Competing swells from opposed directions again setting the stage under lackluster water levels still on the drop. Better conditions are expected as the day unfolds but only the movement of the clock knows the ultimate truth. Today clearly has certain possibilities, if one pays heed to tidal charts and broken hearts.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Through keen eyes shapes are observed and contemplation begins. Price varies by location as most are drained and void of water levels needed to support enduring stoke. The retreating waters offer no favors, but look ever forward to the arvo hours. Tidal return and holding of stature could make one’s afternoon worth reverie and reflection.

PATCH: A six-pack of black clad specimens make their way out to the depths. Rides are erratic and shortened as rock, stone and sand outnumber waters and walkabout potential is limited. As stated above, arrival time is crucial if the full aspects of slides are to be realized.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and touch that never hurts.” - Charles Dickens

Under the sunniest of skies and the lowest of tides we feel the warmth and promise of new beginnings. Already 57F and nary a breath of wind to disturb the serenity of the early morning hours. Roads remain damp and steaming but hearts again fill as our primary and secondary swells are ready, willing and able to dispense stoke and slides to all available seekers. Parking surprisingly thin for a hump day mission. Settled seas are smooth and glistening with potential unlimited.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Depleted of sand and water with a drained tide well below the equilibrium. The pole and its associated wall are exposed and surrounded by canine explorers searching for morning morsels. Out upon the water sand migration is evidenced by returning peaks at the very end of the ramp breaking both right and left without a care in the world. The Channel and Groin will only benefit from returning tides of the early afternoon to truly show their apparatus in action.

PATCH: Scattered yet solid forms finding a route to shore but from well outside or other areas with some depth . The interior avenue is stone, stick and sand with all exposure baking in the sun. The early lows will eventually give way to adequate water levels after lunch and into the dark night. Find yourself here at some point today.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile and a grateful heart.” - Zig Ziglar

Lacy sheets of pouring rain falling steadily from high to low. Morning showers cast wet shadows blocking all sun for warmth as an easy breeze picks up speed. Abandoned streets, clear from signs of life, hunkered down inside from the elements, most watch from inside out windows. Rivers rush down both sides of the ramp and continue through sand to meet the salty sea. Out yonder confusion and mixed direction for all to see and no one partakes. Waiting is the name of the game and with fingers and toes crossed, this too shall pass.

                                                        

CHANNEL: WNW swell primary, though showing no sign of life in the current storm. Negative tide in full effect as Channel proper reveals its center island. Waves crumbling through ankle height at best and lacking any energy. No one out anywhere, for there’s nothing to see. By late afternoon once the passing storm has been and gone, take a gander with fresh new eyes.

PATCH: The meeting rock proudly stands without movement around near or far. Sharp and pointy, the forefront and backdrop are unforgiving for the surefooted. Best to call it a day and seek activity elsewhere.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“There’s nothing in the world more powerful than a good story.” - Tyrion Lannister

Morning dew drops glowing yellow as the rising sun has come out of hiding. Fluffy clouds linger in the background, like wall flowers, with birds singing in tune from branches above. Numbingly cold to being at 50, while numbers are excepted to climb upwards to 59 before another shower of rain commences by early evening. For now bundled up, watch your step down the ramp and take a walk on the crystalized sandy shore crunching beneath your feet.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Glorious sun shining through misty air, casting golden sparkles on the oceans surface. W swell slightly bent on the sides with less energy and form than otherwise posted. Low tide not helping the current situation, as waves roll in the ankle to shin height with less push. Hopeful riders lay in waiting for the tide to roll in and hopefully save the day.

PATCH: Lacking rhythm with lines haphazardly swaying forward missing the beat. Two stand ups missing the eight counts on where to begin to find the end. As more songs play and fill in, let the bass be your guide.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“It is what we know already that often prevents us from learning.” - Claude Bernard

Ear popping cracks of lightning and booming thunder breaks dawns beginnings. Uneasy weather settling in for yet another day, in mid-May? Humid temps starting at 50 not climbing passed 55 for a high. A familiar furry friend patiently waits for the key of warmth to turn and shelter from the storm. Parking is open as most are sheltering in place and preparing for who will take the throne. Winter is no longer invited and the dragons will have their final say.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Large amounts of debris on the boat ramp as sand etched out rebar at the bottom. The ocean is mighty confused in which direction to turn and flow. W swell blown out from the storm, leaving white water crumbles and white capped beginnings. No peaks or valleys and seasick waves churning in the ankle height. No one in or out of the water as of yet.

PATCH: So take, take me home. Cos I don’t remember. Take, take me home. Cos I don’t remember. Take, take me home. Cos I don’t remember. Take, take me home.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Discipline is choosing between what you want now, and what you want most.” - Abraham Lincoln

Clouds above and timeless mist below while the temp finds and seeks 50F. Winds remain calm but the immediate future remains unsettled as all eyes turn towards the sea and horizon beyond. Though the weather does not bode well for backyard bbqs, the foundation and framework is laid for breakers. Tide and time are the limiting factors with negative water levels just now making a comeback. Winds and weather will also play a significant role in the pursuit of stoke so act in the moment as this piece of paradise is fleeting and temperamental.

                                                        

CHANNEL: The key, as always, is timing this morning as the volume of water makes waiting essential. As the hours slip by expect atmospheric changes to effect all outcomes. Parking is currently available due to the early hours of the day. Be mindful of others as you seek your bliss, as you will undoubtably not be the only one.

PATCH: A barren Patch save for one solitary individual wielding carbon fiber on the far outskirts. Early morning lows and exposed stone are harshing the mellow, so be aware, as the luncheon and dinner menu may offer the most satisfaction. Ultimately you may find yourself wanting if the weather predictions come to an early fruition.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Things turn out the best for people who make the best of the way things turn out.” - John Wooden

We initiate the drying out under mottled and cool skies with temps of 51F and relatively light puffs of wind. Storm borne NW windswell the primary actor with a background S taking center stage later in the day. Janitorial clean up on all aisles is required but not by the sweepers of the sea. If the weather holds steady and some calming hours pass this could be a day to kindle stoke and find slides. The tidal push should provide the forms you seek, but they are marginally evident in the early hours. The only thing predictable is the unpredictability.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Exposed sand and strewn stone in all directions gazed upon. The ocean reclaims most of what was deposited along the shore and the landscape gets re-imagined and differentiated. Water volume remains low but a chunky windswell is finding pockets of depth and activating in random shapes and areas. Water invasion will help the cause with the only concern the return of the winds.

PATCH: SW swell under low tide conditions can be seen from above yet not felt below. The presence may not fully arrive until the afternoon hours under positive water levels. Although lacking in briny reserves, outside waves pop up and perpetuate the hopeful positive future. Unruly action to be clear but a distant hoot may have echoed through the canyon.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice.” - Anton Chekhov

Weather reprieve lasting only for moments though the damage is done as SW winds continue under detached blue skies. A pervasive damp and micro mist dusts objects as the switch gets turned ON and OFF while the mercury dips down to 53F. A subdued air hangs above the village with only minor stirrings from the creatures in the early hours. Strewn debris and beach sand removal all along the ramp show the power and remains of the S swell which has now depleted.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Slipshod shapes and patchwork undulations as we approach a full high tide. The evidence is quite compelling and forms are only present as an amusement for those seeking actual stoke. A day of bobbing and balancing may eventually yield a slide, but the merits will remain questionable.

PATCH: Cause it’s gone , daddy, gone - your love is gone. Yeah, it’s gone, daddy, gone - your love is gone. Yeah, it’s gone, daddy, gone - your love is gone. Yeah, it’s gone, daddy, gone - your love is gone away.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Encourage innocent amusement.” - Joseph Addison

Low clouds and heavy damp. Rain and wind as the party spoiler. Special moments now reduced to a disheveled landscape of confusion. Swell still activated and willing but Mother Nature makes other plans. Temp locked in at 57F but strong SW winds knocking peaks down and out and blowing in your face. Many hopeful sliders still come, suit up and unload trusty sleds only to stare dispassionately at the scene along the water’s edge.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Quiet desperation and a fading memory. The thoughts of a broken soul as one gazes towards the ever present marker. Those still seeking stoke will brave the higher tides though with questionable outcomes. Be forewarned - nothing clean exists today.

PATCH: A lone and insistent initiate climbs the wall to gain a better vantage point on the gravity of the situation. Taking the well-worn inside path to fruition of shapes barely recognizable from the previous evening’s wave festival. Find what you can today for it will be only what you make of it.

“Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.” - Oprah Winfrey

Moody gray thick and socked in, tucking away sunshine rays from corners edge. Humid and sticky atmospheric space, temps hover at 50. More incoming than outgoing and parking spaces are set at a premium. Quivered boards of feathered varieties displayed before the final coat of wax is applied. You can feel it, if you didn’t already know, there’s something in the water.

                                                        

CHANNEL: SSW swell hitting hard angles and slightly missing Channel proper. Waves rolling in the knee to thigh range with sharp shoulders and smooth faces. Out front the boat ramp peak and valley formations ebb and flow for those who want space. Pick your poison, pick your stick and enjoy the ride!

PATCH: Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes. Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes. And eyes and ears and mouth and nose. Head, shoulders knees and toes, knees and toes. *sung on endless repeat*

“There may be a brighter star. But through my eyes the light of you is all I see.” - Stevie Wonder

Alarm notifications preset for early morning wake ups to begin the weekly grind, sing in high volume for wakey-wakies. Commuters in all forms, headlights turned on high to combat the thick gray overhead covering. Outside temps starting low at 48 as white fingers clasp hot mugs with hopes of pinker colors. Down jackets buttoned up, topped off with woolly hats, down to the shore we go. Left and right glassy forms move forward with perfect framed white water A’s.

                                                        

CHANNEL: High tide peaking, yet the South swell is here to play. Lots of current churning in Channel proper causing constant repositioning for the perfect spot. Hurry up and wait is the name of the game to ride waist high slides. All sleds of different angled varieties will bring stoke and joy to those who can join in.

PATCH: Lines rolling in at a constant beat with a snare drum clash at the end. Join the conga line and shake your tail feathers waist high. Plenty of beats to go around for everyone who want to join in on the dance.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Sweater, n.: garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly.” - Ambrose Bierce

Overclouded fuzz towering above as the sun has decided to sleep in this morning. A slight tickle of breeze feeling the chill at 50. Still and quiet, a calm blanket covers town in the morning break. Today is special, one in which we celebrate our Mother’s and our Mother figures for all the support, strength, humor and unconditional love they give us all day, every day. So go out there and show some mother lovin’ love to all the mother’s and mother’s of others, for without all of you, all of us would not be half the people we are today. THANK YOU!

                                                        

CHANNEL: Glassy gray slow motion ocean movement, as the South swell slowly arrives to play. Long periods of waiting in between knee high sets in Channel proper. A gang of 8 out fighting against the outgoing tide, trying to stay in position, resulting in tired arms and missed opportunity. Practice patience and pick your favorite.

PATCH: Every once in a blue moon, a line or two appears out of thin air. It’s all a waiting game, and those who have the most patience wins.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Everything is nothing - with a twist.” - Kurt Vonnegut

A willing sky ready to impart color as the sun desires to pierce the cover. 54F degrees and supremely still air has the morning initially quiet though trembling with expectation. Early high tide on the drop and yards upon yards of sandy beach are exposing. The low lows equal a no go in BoBo. As the volumes fills in the voids, slides and smiles should be on tap.

                                                        

CHANNEL: The grey hours reveal a running tide and the ever watching steel pillar. Dawn cracking sliders making the most of a diminishing resource with water levels running to sea level and then below. Rippling upon the surface but not destroying all vibes. Solace can and will be found, but it will likely be near the mid-afternoon high water mark.

PATCH: I’m standing in your corridor. I wonder what I’m waiting for. The leaves are drifting out to sea. I’m waiting for you desperately. All things beautiful. I want everything.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Anything that has real and lasting value is always a gift from within.” - Franz Kafka

Heady vibes and low tides while we implore the sun to make itself known. A density of cloud cover though drier than days past. Calm and mild at 54F as we gaze into quieted seas. More volume in all ingredients is required currently but a trio efforts to disrupt the calm and conjure slides.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Exposed beach well beyond the pole. Lucky canines have full control of breakers and a wide range to run. As the tide fills, more desirable shapes should fill the field of vision. Keep all expectations real and welcome any offerings on tap later in the day.

PATCH: Fledgling forms for all vampires in the early light of outgoing morning tide. Swell shifting to more westerly degrees and water now fully evaporated through the morning. Those gathered on the wall turn to the far side of the beach to view intermittent shapes and brief glimpses of hope. Momentous lulls between will give you time to study all manner and form of exposed stone and rock.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.” - James A. Michener

Mixed mists and light rain to wet surfaces and slicken roads. Evening afterglow met with harsh morning realities of deep negative tides and light S winds. Swell still holding firm though workable substrates are absent in the early hours. Comfortable at 54F and quiet with only the necessary beings moving around. Use free time wisely and clear the afternoon calendar for sliding.

                                                        

CHANNEL: A stalwart trio of the suited and booted surveys and searches for adequate figures and forms. Dressed for success they depart the shore for uncharted depths, wading through the shallows rather than paddling. Unknown outcomes await them and all of us. *There is a small fishing boat bobbing among the participants.

PATCH: Minus low tide putting a firm hold on the area and exposing all underlying secrets. Acceptable shapes for sliding are currently nonexistent. Look to the later portion of the day to rouse the spirits when the tide returns and the swell struts out.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Make the most of the best and the least of the worst.” - Robert Louis Stevenson

Between mist and sprinkles as we bridge the gap between dew and rain. High grey and low winds while we wonder where’s Waldo in the form of S swell. Temp starts at 54F and early stirrings of humanity are met with low tides heading towards the negative but have hearts full of joy and stoke at the wonder and potential. Options, though not unlimited, and the tide resumes filling in the later morning and holds steady throughout the balance of the day.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Fully stocked and groomed beach sands have reached new levels of height. Receding waters and light SW winds making a tricky combo for early seekers of stokage. Sliders positioned off the point of breaker entry in an attempt to glean a corner. Reassess and revisit upon a fuller tide for better returns on investment.

PATCH: Early enthusiasm bordered with rocky outcroppings. The most consistent rides and slides should play to form here and improve with more water additions. As per custom you may need to dodge paddle and plastic while it is furiously thrown about or seek the tranquility and distance of Green Africa. With careful discernment, rides of yards can be found and ridden. Overall volume is on the way down and shapes may take a brief respite before returning as the day continues.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of time like dew on the tip of a leaf.” - Rabindranath Tagore

Gray and silver overhead while the sun plays coy in hiding. Damp streets as tires hiss traveling over the hill transporting precious cargo. Tepid to start at 54 with temperatures rising to 61 by late noon. Scattered parking out front the new gate while school goers line up for pick ups and chatty goats catch up on the latest town gossip. A new energy in the air and in the sea that is felt near and far for a select few who can come out and play.

                                                        

CHANNEL: New south arriving on the horizon, yet cannot break through low tide. Ocean current through Chanel proper is strong leading out to sea as fishermen brace with force and bend at the knee. No one currently out as waves roll in the shin height. As tide turns, keep an eye on the pole, and bring your sled with you.

PATCH: Pay no attention to the rocky warning sign for fun is on the horizon. White crumbly edges and smooth faces await those who can make the extra paddle. No rush to try every one as more are coming along the way. Slow and steady arms win the race.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“In small matters trust the mind, in large ones the heart.” - Sigmund Freud

Overnight rain dissipating into misty sprinkles as dawn breaks a new day. Humidity high with temperatures low at 50 to begin. Dampness seeping through cracks and crevices with little puddles here and there; feels like March in May. Dusting off the rain slicker once more, leaving behind sunglasses for goulashes, trudging to shore, first right then left. From atop of the wall the best view in town enjoyed solo.

                                                        

CHANNEL: Wading fishermen head to toe in protective rubber casting lines hoping for a bite. North western swell creating little movement as water laps knees of those holding poles. A herd of seals gather around angling for the first catch, while birds fly over head for seconds. As tide rolls in, only time will tell if rides may be found. For now, sit and watch the banana slug parade go by.

PATCH: Rocky beginnings mark the trail with tide pools full of life. Every now and again, a small white shawl wraps the shoulders of the outside meeting rock, disappearing in the blink of an eye. With a little imagination and a whole lot of luck, afternoon glides will hold in the future.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you.” - Marsha Norman

Thick gray overlay blanketing tight and tucked in the corners, while town remains calm and still for now. Chill to begin at 50 with only the edge burned off by afternoon to 57. Memories of yesterdays dancing whales, breaching the surface and blowing spray high at the forefront crisp and clear. Nature’s beauty for all to see, only for a select few. A new focus begins today, with most envisioning salty rims, sliced limes and frozen beverages. With tacos in hand armed with spicy fixings, celebrating the victory at The Battle of Puebla. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

                                                        

CHANNEL: Sand bar shift causing quite a stir with grainy covering abound. Only the lady remains visible, laying in all her glory. Low tide shifting to an early incoming, yet no proof is in the pudding. WNW swell meandering towards shore with no hurry. Waves rolling in at ankle height through Channel Proper. Currently seals are the only adventurous ones exploring.

PATCH: A stand up crew of five gliding horizontally passed the meeting rock without bobbing. Rocky beginnings start the journey with birds in the middle and stillness at the finish. For now, finish what you started, with breakfast burrito in hand.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
“Stay close to nature; stay close to the earth.” - Carol Schuldt

Misplace emphasis dissolved, a merciful sleep delivers us into a fresh end-of-week stillness. Calls of the winged townsfolk echo across the windless morning. Three classic watercraft lean along the tennis court fence: lonesome travelers at the station awaiting their salty locomotive. Claws and upturned crustacean bodies tangled in ocean vines litter the deserted battlefield at the edge of land. Meanwhile, we remain crazy about the sea, spilling its memory over all that allow. The way in is way out.

                                                        

CHANNEL: If it’s leaving it’ll come back. In Proper, get up, get down, and get on your horse. Quick shin right and knee left, of course, of course.

PATCH: Phosphorescent sheen of the unborn summer is magnetic. The thousand beiges come and go with a glittering interplay. It’s cold with a chilling coldness, trickling its undulating way around the peek-a-boo meeting rock. Farther down, the suction of the maelstrom kisses many a precious stone. And outside, a patient three put on a show without a care for scale or consistency.
