Water temp dipped into the sub-50 degree range this morning, settling at 49.3 degrees for the coldest water temps so far this year. Air temp at my usual surf spot(s) this morning was 37 degrees at 0730 hours.
The NW wind swell peaked on Saturday (12 feet at 12 seconds) with some pretty nice waves at the best spots, and some decent rides at the smaller locations. It was ultra crowded. White capping was severe but those breaks sheltered from the direct blow had waves all day. Sunday and today the swell is backing down. There is a small south swell (1.1 feet at 17 seconds from 205 degrees) currently in the water.
Waves are small this morning and the tide is minus early. There is no real energized swell in the water and things look small, small, small for the foreseeable future. There are a couple things of minor interest going on in the North and the South PAC, but in reality these weather events hold little promise for future waves of any significance at this time. But who knows, mother nature is always delivering on promises she doesn't make.
