This is surfer Justice Patao in a great barrel at his home break. Great shot from photographer John Patao.
Talking about which, here's the readings.
8.5ft @ 16s from 30° (NNE)
NW of the NW buoys!!! In Pat we trust....
And of course, the west side is an easy call in these cases.
Watch the tide, since it's one of those days (half moons) in which there's only one high and one low.
Probably epic sailing conditions if you know where to go, though.
This close up of the wind map shows the local wind direction.
Three fetches to be happy of: a north one, a west one and a south one.
We might even get an east one soon, if the tropical storm that's hanging SE of the islands will do its forecasted track.
Supposed to become hurricane force, we'll keep an eye on it.
In the meantime, happy hunting and be safe. There's some big waves out there today.
