Monday’s Surf – Looking ugly

Monday does not look like a surf day.

We are going to see some slowly fading WNW swell, local windswell, and a touch of tiny background SW swell but it looks like winds are going to hack it up pretty good for most spots.

Sizewise look for consistent chest-shoulder high at most of the average exposed spots. Top breaks with exposure to the windswell/WNW swell mix will be closer to head high on the bigger sets. Shape is going to be pretty poor…any spot that escapes the wind won’t really be able to pull in any of the swell…so we are kind of out of luck for tomorrow.

Weather we can expect W-NW winds 10-15 knots with some near 20 knot gusts by the afternoon. It may be a little lighter in the morning but I think it is going to nice and lumpy no matter what the wind is doing right at dawn. Expect it to get progressively worse through the afternoon.

Personally I am not planning on surfing tomorrow…the winds look like they are going to make it complete poo for most of the day. Oh I will probably check a surf cam now and then throughout the day but it will be mostly for entertainment sake. Fortunately winds look like they get better on Tuesday and then even more offshore by Wednesday…hopefully some surf will stick around through the middle of the week.

This is how Monday's wind makes me feel...(sorry I am suddenly back to posting lame internet stuff again.)
