Monday’s waves – Not looking very surfable.

Well the storm didn’t quite live up to Friday’s forecast, as many of you could probably tell when you woke up to clear skies and light winds on Sunday morning. (Natuarlly I woke up and swore...seriously I think forecasters may be the only people who get mad when the weather is nice)

Looks like the models have pushed the storm back a little further into the week…but the models are changing almost every run at this point so I guess we will have to wait and see.

On to the surf…

Monday’s waves are not looking all that great. We will have a bit of local windswell, a small NW swell, and some weak SW energy. Most breaks will hold around ankle-waist high when the 6’+ high tide isn’t totally shutting it down.

Winds are supposed to be on it pretty early. We may have a short window of cleanliness right at sun-up but that is right about when the tide peaks as well. Expect SW-W winds blowing around 10-15 knots for most of the rest of the day.

Personally I am not very interested in surfing sub-par slop so I will probably do chores or something. If you have to surf bring something that works well with small waves, expect wind on it, and expect the tide to give it a good working over at times as well.
