Run of SW swells ahead - plus more West Pac Typhoon action

A bit warbled but fun shot from the weekend - Hurricane Eugene pushed up more swell than expected Saturday - still some traces around today from the south - but probably just blending in with the incoming new sw swell.  We also have traces of swell from Typhoon Muifa - but quite small and background at best.  We will see a building trend of sw swells for about the next 10 days.  The best days look like Aug 12-16 when we could see some plus size sets at south facing breaks.  We have another typhoon, MERBOK - out in the West Pac - which could potentially send us another small WNW swell (290-300) around Aug 15-16.  A sure sign that Fall is just around the corner with typhoons turning extra tropical.  Winds/ fog - continue to bog the coast down - sw/west onshore winds the rule - lightest in the morning hours.  There are some spots that have been cleaner - but you have to know where to look.  Cya in the water.
