These are the darkest times of the year to be a surfer in Nor Cal. About a month to go before the start of the surfing fall season - so hang tight. If you look around, you can see very early signs (quite early in fact) of the season to come. In West Marin, local elm and maples are showing color along with the Redwoods. Could be drought induced and the trees are saying the hell with it and going into early hibernation, or a sign of an early fall and perhaps rainy season. Time will tell. El Nino continues to gather momentum and all will be revealed soon enough. In the meantime, big warm up this week and that might extend enough to the coast to give us a break from the onshore winds and fog. High pressure moving over us from the East. A new southwest swell will start to fill in tomorrow and run through Thursday. Peak day is Wednesday. Should be good for chest high with some plus sets at good south facing breaks. Angle of approach 210-225. Just nw windswell right now from the N Pac. Nothing on the charts beyond. Next few mornings should feature light winds. Cya in the water.
