Welcome to the 2013-2014 Surf Season

September 1st.  We made it through another summer.  Small pulse of northwest windswell from 285-310 continues today with waist/shoulder high waves at better breaks.  Small southwest continues too.  Winds are mostly onshore as fog continues to hug the coast.  In the Gulf of Alaska - stationary low pressure circulation will drive another similar size northwest pulse in here Monday into Tuesday.  Winds look to remain problematic - lightest in the mornings.  In the long range (next weekend) we might see our first real shot of northwest swell (overhead sets) as a low pressure system just coming out of the Bering Sea will drop into the Gulf of Alaska early in the week, develop winds over the sea surface and bring us swell.  I'll have an update on that Wednesday, as well as a look ahead at coastal winds to see how conditions will be.  Cya in the water.
