Gnarly Irish Barrels! Luke Hynd is rapidly making a name for himself as one of the fringe surfers – one of those guys who is always where you wouldn't expect. This time, it's in the land of the leprechauns, where he's seen chasing monsters in thick neoprene. This, ladies and gents, is what we like to call emerald envy.

By Monday morning we’ll see a series of South swells, (from a wide range of angles), fill in through the day. #1 will be that steep 170-175, (12-14 second intervals), that’s already in the water. #2 will be some more liberally angled from 220-230 degrees, (18+ second intervals). #3 will be the last swell of record, coming up the line from a 195-200 degree angle, (16 second intervals).

These swells will work their way into the mix through the day and size will vary up and down the coast with the standout South facing beaches getting the motherlode of the energy.

Most spots will see chest high sets with the top combo breaks seeing inconsistent larger waves.
