Wha'ppen?


SE WIND 10 TO 15 KT...BECOMING S 20 TO 25 KT. WIND WAVES 2 FT...BUILDING TO 4 FT. W SWELL 6 FT AT 10 SECONDS.
It wasn't this small on the north coast...
But it was pretty small...
Definitely didn't feel like a 6 foot swell...
Small enough I didn't paddle out...
Meanwhile south coast reports like...
"Only four of us made it out..."
"...swinging wide at 10' to 15' plus..."
"...perfect direction but heavy..."
"...to get caught inside was death..."
Although the death part is rough...
Maybe I need to get down south.

Spied the new Mooky buoy reading 3 at 9 at one point. Usually doesn't float my boat, but who knows sure someone was stoked to just get out. Was on the fence, but glad I worked. Reef cuts almost healed.

It was very surfable in the morning.

You're longboarding now right?

thats where the spectral data came in real handy. one swell read 6@10, the other 1@20, somehow the forecasters turn that into a 6@16 which certainly wasnt the case!

6 @ 16? Where you lookin?

5 at 10 in the morn and 4 at 9 in the afternoon is what I saw on Buoyweather, simple yet reliable.

Sundays looking good!

Ya see the pics from the 'Con on Sunday? Word has it that at noon it was 3 feet, an hour later was DOH and growing. A few pics pf Blake show a fifteen foot face easy. We went flat Monday morning more or less...
