New southwest swell just starting to show - 2ft at 17 from 230 - look for a building trend through the weekend - and then another sw swell to roll in early next week. The 2nd swell should be a bit larger. Fog, onshore winds will continue to be an issue at the coast - probably through next week - as high pressure has moved off and has been replaced by an upper level trough over the northwest. This will keep temps cool coast side - and in many cases those of you at the coast won't even see the sun. June/July gloom - pretty typical. Not watching much else right now - the N Pac is asleep - except for our summer windswell. There is a tropical depression down by Acapulco but it's not forecast to enter our swell window when it gains strength. With this pattern in place - best bet is to always surf early, check the winds. Cya in the water.
