It was nice to see the sun come out today after a few days of overcast skies and mixed rain showers. Today was a beautiful 80 degrees and mostly sunny. Low tide was at 1:19 pm and when I paddled out about 40 minutes later, the water was so shallow that my hands hit the reef while paddling from the beach. Had a short surf session, but still managed to get a few good rides in. Wish I had more time to paddle farther to the outer breaks, where I watched a couple of longboarders get wave after wave.
#51 / 2pm
[2-3 ft @15 seconds. Wind 17mph. Light east winds with a slight chop. Small long period swell from the south. REGIONAL SUMMARY: Another day of small fun wave riding as SSE swell is still providing surf for town shorelines this morning. Most locations have waves in the knee to waist high range with some larger chest/shoulder high sets mainly at channel entrances. The Kilo Nalu buoy is reading 2.5 feet @ 13.8seconds…so there is still residual swell registering on the buoy. Glassy conditions prevail this morning but normal trades are forecast to fill in later to provide typical offshore conditions in town and sideshore bump for southeast exposures.]
