New West swell will fill in Monday and stick around through Tuesday. Look for head to slightly overhead waves at the best facing breaks. Offshore winds most of this week - maybe an afternoon sea breeze of sorts. Fun size surf really through Friday. Cya in the water.

Swell still 5.5ft at 12 from 270+ - winds coming up a bit and will really start to blow from the north and northwest tomorrow as a very cold system drops south out of British Columbia. Could see freezing temps at the Coast by Thursday/Friday morning - and very cold temps in the 20s inland. No rain to speak of - however models are hinting at that possibility for next weekend and beyond. Swell wise this week - mix of north and northwest windswell will be the rule really - and winds are going to probably make a mess of it from Tuesday on. Sheltered spots will probably be best, but also small given the short period nature of the swells on tap. So, good week to get back to work. Keep an eye on the winds and swell, know your spots and you might find something to ride. ***Side note - NOAA released it's buoy recovery and repair list for 2014 and none of the CA Buoys that are out - are on the list to be repaired and redeployed. Thanks NOAA. Papa and CA will remain off the grid for the season. Cya in the water.

Super clean conditions today with small waves. That will change quickly tomorrow night as a strong west (265-295) swell fills in rapidly. Thanksgiving will dawn with booming conditions - deepwater 8-10ft ++ with long periods. Unlike most of the swell events so far this season - this has quite a bit of westerly angle - so breaks that favor big west/northwest swells will be rocking. Winds look really good for Thursday and Friday. Might even see decent winds for Saturday. By Sunday, nw winds may ramp up some. Swell right through Sunday as we get a reinforcing shot of waves for Sat/Sun. Plenty to ride, cya in the water.

Surf will be small to flat this weekend depending on your location. N Pac swell machine has gone to sleep and all we really have is northerly windswell from 325 plus. Really the story of our season so far - extreme angle smaller swells as the Eastern part of the North Pacific has been the most active. So grab a log or go golf. Things may improve early next week - but just by a touch. Cya in the water.

Good size storm system organizing about 700 miles offshore this morning will bring badly needed rain to most of central and northern California over the next 3-4 days. Heaviest amounts north of SF but looks like everyone will get in on the action starting late tonight in Sonoma County. Swell wise, doesn't look to hot this week - going to be mostly windswell and smaller north swell right through next Saturday. Might be some windows in between bands of rain and wind - but this might be a good week to get some work done. After this week's rain event high pressure will build back in which will give us an extended period of dry weather thru Thanksgiving. Cya in the water.
