Good Times Ahead - Plenty of Swell
West swell filling in - presently at 3.4 at 14 at 290. Size will continue to increase through the weekend - with Saturday and Sunday featuring overhead waves - double overhead at times at the north facing breaks on Sunday and into Monday. The rain is over, and it looks like it wont rain again in the month of January. La NIna is in full control - and a dry January is very typical of a strong La Nina pattern. Good for surfers - offshore winds/light morning winds look the norm for the next seven days or more. The swell machine is positioned out in the West Pacific - low pressure pumping out longer period west swells for the next few days. So definitely a good time to get some. **UPDATE FOR WINDS - could see some very light west/northwest winds the next couple mornings - so i think protected spots might be cleanest - but certainly check winds in the AM before you go out. cya in the water.
