Winter West Coast Swell
The first real winter swell of the season is hitting CA right now!
Any word on Nelscott Reef Contest? Why no webcast!?
How about Sunset Beach contest?
Anybody have pics or reports? Curious.

Well at 1 a.m. on Maui's north shore I could hear Peahi pounding. After voting and driving to work I saw Maliko breaking at about 15' or so, Ho'kipa closing out. Light wind.
Supposed to build, so California can't be far behind for some size.
Here is the official word:
SURF ZONE FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HONOLULU HI
900 AM HST TUE NOV 2 2010
900 AM HST TUE NOV 2 2010
HIGH SURF WARNING FOR NORTH FACING SHORES
HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR WEST FACING SHORES
Surf along north facing shores will rise to 25 to 35 feet today, then lower to 20 to 28 feet on Wednesday.
Surf along west facing shores will rise to 12 to 18 feet today, then lower to 10 to 15 feet on Wednesday.
Surf along east facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet today through Wednesday, except locally 8 to 12 feet for areas exposed to the north.
Surf along south facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet today through Wednesday.
Outlook through Monday Nov 8: the current north northwest swell will gradually lower Thursday and Friday. A new north northwest swell is expected to arrive on Sunday, possibly reaching advisory levels Sunday night and Monday. Strengthening trade winds later in the week will cause an increase in short period surf along east facing shores.

Calling 40' faces in Oregon... http://www.facebook.com/pages/Nelsco...1062669?v=wall
most of the beaches around me in the SF Bay Area are looking maxed. Mav's is probably looking ridiculous this afternoon!

Hey, why are all of the Mavs webcams down?

20 feet at 20 seconds intervals from 300 degrees
So Cal will be out of control on Wednesday.
Maybe I can get in by Thursday/Friday

Push it on into systematic overdrive
