Okay, seems like quite a bit of swell continues to sneak in under the radar. On paper, yesterday was supposed to be a dying swell, and I, being a veteran of aquatic beatings still managed to get totally worked. I’ll give it a 3.5, (out of 5) stars netti pot rating as I was dragged underwater for what seemed to be, in totality, the length of a football field or at least a Canadian end zone!!!
Even today, Thursday, there were still a few sets with swagger and it looks like some deep water swell is hanging in the balance along with a sprinkle of wind swell so stay on your toes. The standard buoy readings seem to be irrelevant over the last few days… Mother Nature has been working on her curve ball and even more intimidating is her spitter!
Friday morning starts off with waist to chest high sets into the best West facing breaks. There is some small, but potent ground swell due to show later in the day. This will be good for waist to maybe chest high sets from a 300 degree angle and 17 second intervals.
