Last week of July - one more full month of summer to go. Not much change ahead this week - strong northwest winds will continue to howl over the outer waters as high pressure to our east and southwest wrestles with low pressure in the Gulf of Alaska. Good size windswell the main source of waves. Tropics have been active but not a ton of swell making it up this far. Way down under, some decent storm development showing for the past week and in the week ahead - may see some southwest swells show in another week or so. Hang in there, surf early, or travel to warm waters. Regular updates will start again on Sep 1. Cya in the water.

One more holiday to go after this one (Labor Day) and then it's fall. Windswell, fog and not so great south winds remain our primary source of energy as we enjoy a typically normal summer holiday weekend. There is some south swell in the water but it's very small and inconsistent. Two tropical systems churning in the East Pac - Agatha and Blas - could see some small swell from Blas late next weekend - depending on the track of the storm and how much it intensifies. Keep your expectations low and you can find waves to ride. Cya in the water.
