Sat photo tells the story or our swell maker for the weekend. Nice small storm in the Gulf pushing winds and resulting swell in our direction. Probably look for building swell all day Friday peaking over the weekend. Biggest surf north - but most Bay Area breaks with good exposure to the west/northwest will see head high waves with overhead sets at the top breaks. This will be mid period swell - probably in the 12-14 second range. Winds right now could be problematic as strong north winds are forecast late week as another low is forecast to drop down the West Coast from BC (Inside Slider) which will create strong north to northeast winds over the weekend and cool temps. Check the mornings - that will be when you will find the lightest winds. North Pac looks active further to the West which should give us more swell as we move into the month of October. Cya in the water.
