No Real Swell of Interest

Waves dropped off dramatically today as no real swell of interest is in play. Talked with Paul and his wife Libby at the grocery store and he said he's been getting some fun breakers at a local beachie on his SUP.

There's really nothing significant on the satellite animations but the Storm Surf NPAC Surface Pressure and Wind animation is showing an event forming now, with a smaller storm event following.

Nothing on the farshore buoys that would indicate anything going on within the next 24 hours or so. The NPAC water vapor loop isn't showing any swell producing winds. Time to start checking the beach breaks, but not to take my eye off the nearshore buoy just in case.

Had breakfast with MikeyB at Zelda's. He's about to get a Haut performance SUP so that's exciting. He meets with Doug next week.


  1. I wanna hear more about the Haut SUP. I didn't know Doug was shaping them. Details, give us details!

  2. Andy,

    I'll keep everyone posted as I learn more myself.
