Waves for the weekend – Not looking very fun

My whole family…me included…is down with the flu today so this is going to be a pretty short forecast. Unfortunately there isn’t a ton of swell arriving this weekend…and conditions look a bit sloppy too.

We will have a mix of knee-waist high+ WNW windswell and some background SW swell. A few of the top spots will be in the chest high+ range but they will be working almost entirely off the windswell.

Weather looks junky…we can expect some steady NW winds in the outer waters that are going to switch back and forth between reaching onshore or spinning up some slight eddies. Morning winds look the cleanest (that being a relative term)…with variable to SW flow around 10-knots. NW winds around 10-15 knots move through in the afternoon.

I would probably just do a quick cam check in the morning…it shouldn’t take you too long…just enough to convince yourself that cold waist high slop isn’t really that much fun.

I will be back, hopefully healthier, on Monday. Have a good one.

Adam, hope you feel better. My family had it last week. Couldn't get out of bed one day.

Feeling better now only to be greeted by cold, windy, murky churned up surf.

We had a lot of fun testing boards all day Saturday!
