Look! Look! Nope...


S WIND 15 TO 20 KT WITH GUSTS TO 25 KT. WIND WAVES 5 FT. SW SWELL 5 FT AT 7 SECONDS.

...of more interest is the supposed formation of low pressure near the dateline and south of the Aleutians pushing east. No swell producing fetch expected immediately, but it is to be pushing east in to the Gulf by Friday with 30 kt west winds building aimed well at and a bit west of Oregon. Possible windswell developing in the days beyond. ~stormsurf

I was looking at the North Coast forecast early in the week and Sunday was calling for 9 foot swell...I was admittedly skeptical...and also a bit disappointed...not by the 9 foot swell...but by the 30 knot winds and 5 foot chop (it comes today) that was also predicted...

But, everything's back to normal again for Sunday...3 foot swell, 10 to 15 knot winds and 2 foot chop...and while there may be a little bump in the swell...I'm guessing the 9'6" will see yet another wet weekend while the shorter boards continue to gather dust in the garage.

And I'll remain high and dry, but hey at least I'll be keeping my carbon footprint smaller and may even get some some sod laid?

"...sod laid..."
Would that be a drunk sod?
Flat and more flat, dents even where waves should be.
Hope all of the ptown kooks dont make the drive for nothing...but then again...
