Week Ahead/Updated Forecast 10-20
Lots of surf on tap this week with west/northwest, southwest and some tropical south/southwest in the water. Pretty much west northwest swell in the water today and tomorrow (shoulder to head hight plus) - then a larger swell builds in late Thursday and Friday with deepwater swell peaking on Friday in the 8-10ft range. Tropical southwest swell from Hurricane Olaf, out near Hawaii will mix in Thursday and Friday as well. For sure the dominant swell will be the northwest which should keep waves going through next weekend as a new pulse moves in next Sunday. Southwest swell in the background all week as the South Pacific remains very active for this time of year. Winds should stay pretty light for am sessions this week - offshore flow trying to set up but might not make it all the way to the coast each day. NO rain in the forecast through the period - but models are hinting at perhaps a pattern change over a week out. Cya in the water.
