Mid period northwest swell rolling in at 6ft 14 seconds.   Winds are blowing offshore - east to southeast as a storm system off our coast is dropping down from south of Oregon.  Cold rain showers and low elevation snow will be possible over the next 36 hours or so.  South winds will blow tonight giving way to north winds on Sunday.  Thereafter, it will start to look a lot like Spring with northwest winds and smaller northwest swell through next Wednesday.  Swell will hover around 4-6 ft.   March 1st is the official end of the "good" surfing season up here, but I suspect we will plenty of decent days in the weeks ahead as the Pacific isn't done with CA yet.  Cya in the water.

Northwest winds are howling - big chunky northwest swell/wind swell at around 12-14ft with 11-12 second intervals.  Winds may drop down some tomorrow but another very strong storm will be knocking on our door late Sunday, south winds will ramp with heavy rain through Tuesday.   Looking beyond the next 4-5 days - might see high pressure re-establish itself around next Wednesday or Thursday.  We are moving towards March 1, the traditional end of the "good" wave season up here and the start of northwest winds and diminishing swell.  However, this has been anything but a normal winter and we could be in for a very wet spring and more swell than usual.  In the meantime - always spots along the coast to ride no matter what the wind and swell is doing - as well as how desperate one might be to get wet (i happen to be very desperate for surf today, so i'll probably hit it somewhere).   Cya in the water.

Few more days of dry weather until the next cycle of winter storms slams into California.  Fairly light winds and small/mid size surf as well.  Look for the winds to pick up from the south/southeast through the day on Wednesday.  Then it stays unsettled through early next week.  Get it while you can.

No surf for you this week.   Storms lined up across the Pacific will continue through Friday.  The weekend looks like we might dry out - northwest winds and good size swell so certain spots will work.   Until then, get some work done.

Pretty amazing few days of surf coming to an end.  Storm system offshore is going to bring rain back into the forecast - on and off through about Friday and maybe into Saturday and Sunday.  Unfortunately, south to southwest winds are going to rule the region through Sunday.  For breaks that favor those winds - there will be waves.  Don't see any change in the winds through Monday at this point.  Cya in the water.
