Surf for Tuesday – Light swirly winds mix with fading but still steady W-NW swell and a touch of S-SW in the background.

Surf for Tuesday – Light swirly winds mix with fading but still steady W-NW swell and a touch of S-SW in the background.

Tuesday, while still a little mixed up, shows signs of being rideable, if not even playful in a few areas…you just have to avoid the shopping carts floating and other “fun” runoff items floating in the lineup.

More “wintery” WNW swell, a decent S swell, and more freaking rain.

More “wintery” WNW swell, a decent S swell, and more freaking rain.

While conditions don’t look great this week there are going to be some pockets of surfable waves if you don’t mind the chocolate (that doesn’t smell like chocolate) colored water and fairly unstable conditions. We will have a fairly steady stream of overlapping W-NW energy on tap with a bigger pulse near the end of the week that comes with some weather baggage.

Photo Gallery: The weather stinks on Sunday… Remember Thursday?

When the weather goes bogus on us, you gotta remember the good ol’ days… like 4 days ago. When the swell was solid and the weather was prime. Thursday was a good surf day. Check out the shots taken at Newport and Huntington.

Sunday’s Storm – Yes the rain is finally supposed to start

Sunday’s Storm – Yes the rain is finally supposed to start

Overall Sunday will not be a surf day…but as always with the nature of these types of storms…when we have dynamic shifting winds there are spots or sometimes lucky pockets that clean up for short windows…so keep an eye out the window but plan on doing other things.

Stormy weekend…funky waves…but at least our security forces have fought off the dolphins.

Holy site meltdown batman! Well we are up and running again just in time for more stormy conditions to move in and what looks like mostly sloppy surf. Still with all of this storm activity there may be a few pockets forming out there as the fronts move through, if you live close keep an eye on things and you might find a nugget or two.

Wednesday’s Surf – WNW swell continues with S swell in the background and some more funky weather

Wednesday’s Surf – WNW swell continues with S swell in the background and some more funky weather

Wednesday looks pretty surfable for the more protected spots…but winds will still be a bit fluky and we can expect the really exposed spots to continue to see some of that sort “raw” swell shape as several short-medium period pulses dogpile into our region.

NPAC keeps on rumbling…with some S-SW background pulses

NPAC keeps on rumbling…with some S-SW background pulses

Lots of swell on tap this week…most of it aimed towards the Central and Northern Coasts, but that is good in a way…it means all the slop weather will be hitting up there and we will get a chance at a couple good sized WNW-NW swells and potentially some halfway decent winds and weather.

Tuesday’s Surf – Whaaaaa? A decent sized WNW-NW swell and sort of clean conditions? Let’s get it on!

Tuesday’s Surf – Whaaaaa? A decent sized WNW-NW swell and sort of clean conditions? Let’s get it on!

Tuesday will have some surf…and in a few areas it could end up being pretty good…but there are also some strong winds powering through the outer waters that are going to try hard to give us the shaft. So drink up that tiger blood and get your warlock powers ready…cause we are going to need our collective mind powers to keep those winds from ruining a potential surf day.

Monday’s Surf  – Fading mix with some slight texture trying to creep in.

Monday looks rideable…but the swell mix is a bit hodgepodge and the winds while light in the morning are just looking even the slightest excuse to blow onshore.
