Tropical Conditions:
No tropical cyclones at this time


Swell Forecast:
As  predicted the SSW (200-215) arrived on Thursday, and brought some chest to overhead+ surf to better SSW exposures, while more average breaks are in the waist to chest high+ range.  Wave heights are supposed to peak with a few spots seeing set waves going a couple feet overhead when everything comes together through Saturday.  Size will back off through early next week though.

Another pulse of SSW (205-215) arrives on the 10th and building to a peak for the 11th/12th at around 2-4 feet.  This could bring back more chest to overhead+ surf to the exposed SSW facing coast mid next week.  This is a very similar pulse to the one currently in the water, and there's a chance that better exposures could see a few bigger set waves rolling through under the right conditions.

Beyond that, it looks like some weaker SW background swell for around the 13th/14th, but otherwise smaller surf on tap to start the second half of February.  Stay tuned.

Monday the 8th small surf.  the SSW is supposed to back way off, and could be running knee to waist high+ at standouts.

Tuesday the 9th a little extra SSW-SW starts to show up, helping produce more consistent knee to chest high surf, maybe a little bigger at top breaks.

Wednesday the 10th more SSW-SW energy in the water could help boost wave heights into the waist to head high range.

Thursday the 11th, the new SSW-SW should build to a peak late in the day, potentially bringing chest to overhead+ surf to standouts.  waist to chest high+ at more average spots.
