Thursday 05/03/12 Report and Prediction

Report: Small-scale E background waves and light South winds. Not much out there, but see a few scattered surfers making the most of it on bigger boards.

Prediction: Wave heights should pick up a little through the day, particularly early afternoon with the incoming push. S winds might pick up a bit too, but the cloud cover should keep temps down and therefore temper the winds a bit. The small East swell could pick up a little bit tomorrow (not expecting any significant swell, but we should see something equivalent or perhaps a bit larger than today) due to an increase in the period, and right now wind predictions are suggesting they might have a little SW tilt to them, which could yield rideable waves at East-facing and protected breaks.

Extended Forecast: Light to moderate onshore winds and minimal short-period East windswell for the weekend. Potential setup for a South windswell mid-week. Check back late-weekend or early work-week for an update.
