Best days left within event window: Thurs 17th and Sun 20th, with Fri 18th OK. Solid WNW swell for Thurs/Fri. E-ENE trades becoming strong by Fri/Sat. More sizable WNW-NW swell arrives Sun 20th with E trades easing some.
SUNDAY 20th: FAIR to GOOD -- 5-7' faces increasing to 6-9'. Clean.
SWELL/SURF: Reinforcing mid-period NW swell moves in to keep surf elevated with overhead to well overhead sets - strongest in the PM. Both Pipe and Backdoor offering opportunity. WIND: Moderate+ -- ENE trades 11-13kts much of the day, decreasing to 9-11kts going into the evening.
SUNDAY: The same storm that delivered the current swell will send a reinforcing shot of more mid-period WNW-NW swell for Sunday -- providing overhead occasional well overhead sets. Backdoor likely offering more opportunity. Consistency should be fair. The E-ENE trades are projected to back off some to a more moderate level.
