PAPA BUOY BACK - UPDATE FORECAST
Papa Buoy is back online - 600 nm west of Eureka. We once again have a good window to incoming swell trains this winter with Papa, West Oregon and California buoys all operating. Keep an eye on those tomorrow as our new northwest swell shows. Winds aren't ideal this morning - bit of onshore and northwest, light right now but should pick up later today. It's small today mix of south and north facing swells, trace of tropical swell. New northwest swell will begin to fill in late Saturday - probably overnight and build through the day Sunday. Models are forecasting deepwater of 7ft at 14 seconds - will see if that shows. It will be bigger further north you go, except for good north facing beaches around the Bay Area. Keep an eye on the winds - will be lightest early thru the weekend. Cya in the water.
