10ft at 17 from 300 - Weekend Outlook
Powerful, long period west/northwest swell charging tonight. Filled in all afternoon and will peak tomorrow with overhead surf at most spots while top northwest facing breaks will go triple overhead at times. Winds are still offshore, but i think tomorrow morning will be our last offshore AM for a few days as northwest winds are expected to come up in the afternoon as the ridge of high pressure that has given us all these great days at the beach breaks down and the storm track starts to take a more zonal approach to Northern/Central CA. No rain over the weekend, but it's in the forecast starting again next week. Look for our current swell to wind down on Saturday (still size in the AM) and also look for rising short period windswell as northwest winds will blow Saturday/Sunday. Sunday looks pretty iffy with fading swell, windswell and northwest winds. We might see a return to offshore winds early next week until the pattern breaks down and rain develops. So, i'd say get out tomorrow morning and find some place protected on Saturday morning. Watch football on Sunday. cya in the water.
