Orion setting early in the western sky is always a sign the seasons are changing. It's April, and by all accounts by now we're usually strafed by northwest winds and cold water - but so far this spring, knock wood, water temps aren't too bad. And we've been blessed with small, but fairly consistent swells from the Gulf of Alaska. That should continue through the weekend. We also have a small run of back to back southwest swells from down under as the South Pacific begins to stir. Weak storm tonight will briefly shift winds to the south and then strong to the northwest late Friday and Saturday before easing up early next week. Look for deepwater swell from 270-305 at 4-7 ft through next Tuesday. Might see light AM winds for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Stuff to ride, keep an eye on the winds and know your spots. Southwest swell will be from 190-220 through next Thursday. Cya in the water.
