Thanks to blog reader Erik for the kind words about the blog in the lineup. I wanted to take a photo of him surfing with his kid on his board, but for a while I screwed up with the gopro and filmed during the waits instead that during the rides and missed it. Got this shot of a hole in my wetsuit instead. Looks like I need to retire that one soon. Nah, I'll squeeze a couple of more sessions out of it, nothing is hanging out just yet...
4am significant buoy readings
3.9ft @ 13s from 227° (SW)
Pretty strong reading at the SE buoy, there should be waves also today on the south shore. Knee to waist with occasional bigger sets yesterday.
8.7ft @ 9s from 40° (NE)
Between the two, plenty waves on the north shore today, the problem, as usual, will be the wind. Look for sheltered spots or try the west side.
North Pacific shows a strong and close NNE fetch.
South Pacific shows a strong fetch SE of the Tasman Sea and a decent SSE one.
