Update on Weekend Swell

Weekend swell is in the water and pushing south.  *As of Friday AM - swell hitting Papa Buoy at 10ft 15 sec. This should be good for 4-6 ft by the time it reaches our coast.  Swell will build in all day Saturday, slow at first.  Could have some decent energy in the water by sunset.  By Sunday morning - swell should be in full force with overhead waves at north facing breaks.  We'll have another southwest swell underneath over the weekend - which might create a good cross up at beach breaks.  Problem this weekend will be the northwest winds - as high pressure will re build in the East Pacific and increase the gradient.  I think Sunday will have the heaviest winds - from dawn to dusk.  Saturday morning may have lighter northwest wind flow.  So, from Saturday afternoon on - plenty of swell just check the winds and if you know your spots you'll have something to ride.  Cya in the water.
