HURRICANE WATCH Sunday, July 12, 2014 – All quiet on the Western front!
Sunday morning ,should see a very slight bump in size as some small, locally brewed wind swell kicks up some waist high plus peaks for the better West facing breaks. Coupled with that bump, we’ll see some liberally angled SW move in from a 220 + angle. That should be good for some inconsistent waist high plus sets for breaks with Southern exposure,
