Waves for the Weekend – On the Road

Hey gang…sorry about the missed update yesterday, I was taking the slow road on Vacation and didn’t get in front of a computer until this morning. Anyway…here is the update for the weekend.

Saturday and Sunday are both going to be surf days, nothing special sizewise, but clean through the mornings and with a few chest-shoulder high waves at the top spots.

We are going to have a mix of S-SW swell (170-220), some of which is fading energy from the work week as well as some new reinforcement swell from the Southern Hemisphere. The swell does start to trail off a touch on Sunday but there will be a little more pulse from the SW creeping up again on Monday.

Sizewise we can expect most spots to average around knee-waist high, particularly as the tides get funky throughout the day. Top S-SW facing spots will have chest-shoulder high sets, but expect it to be on the inconsistent side and tide sensitive as well.

Winds look good for both days…mostly light and variable through the mornings with some moderate W-SW flow around 10-14 knots for the afternoon.

Like I said, nothing outstanding this weekend…just sort of an average workhorse sort of swell, playful if you can combine a well exposed spot with a decent tide. I would probably stick to your smaller wave gear, something fishy or longboardish, just so you can make the most of the downtime between sets and a few of the smaller spots.

Here are the tides…have a good one!
