Our wind swell hit the 120 buoy around 11 Am this morning and has jumped up to 5.5 feet at 8 seconds from 3.3 feet at 7.
As long as the ESE winds prevail to bring the swell on in, I believe we will have some stomach to maybe chest high waves down south. (maybe Lori Wilson, but best bet would be 2nd light and south) This swell came at a fairly steep angle from the NE, though the winds have switched around to the ESE, I would rather take my chances down south.
The winds are showing showing straight North from daybreak till 9 or 10 and then NE, so its a tough call. 2nd light and south with North winds would be onshore winds, but 4 to 7 degrees offshore at Lori Wilson to 4rth Street North. But there is a chance the winds could go NNW or even NW, and since the winds are only 3 to 5 mph, it may not really matter.
Anyhow, Sunday and Monday morning both look to be stomach to chest high, Sunday with North winds until 10, and then onshore, and Monday is showing ENE to NE winds around 6 to 8 mph at daybreak so Sunday looks like the best day.
Whatever, at least we should have some waves to paddle out to and it is summer so count your blessings 🙂
If the winds do something funky and don’t bring the swell in, then go borrow a SUP 🙂
Hope you pick the right spot. Have a great day !
