Default California slated to get raked by swells

Swells coming in on the 16th. And then more on the 18th into the 19th.

http://cdip.ucsd.edu/?nav=recent&sub...tem=fm_scb_xxx

And this next link is centered on Pacific Grove/ Asilomar area. But you can use the drop down menus on the top bar to re-direct to So. CA beach locations:

If you southern CA guys start posting a bunch of gold rings following these events: I'm going to be sick. Sick sick sick.

If you want to trade reconn. results, we can stay in text message exchange. I'll tell you what I see on the southern part of the bay. And you tell me what you see @ your north end. Just have to have RELIABLE text /ph. or email . So that the communication don't end up going only one way. (As unfortunately happened with someone's contact info in the past. And they ended up not getting word, and I was the "bad guy" because of that )

This is coming in at 280 to 285*-ish. A bit too northerly to fully impact S. Cruz. But on the other hand, S. cruz needs less to erode (than the NW facing beaches). So ... hard to say where the best beaches will be.

Yes, I've been eyeing this for a few days now and took next Wednesday off in anticipation of some sand movement somewhere. I'm hoping to have the mods done on my Excal by then and should be ready for anything.

If you start posting show & tell gold rings at the end of this, I'm going to be sick. Sick sick sick.

Well, the Tuesday bump got downgraded to mediocre. But the Thurs & Friday swell could be worthwhile still.

Mediocre may be better than what we've had but I was thinking the same about this weekend- some strong on-shore winds predicted.

Any impact from this swell wouldn't be realized till later today. The swell is only JUST NOW (7am) starting to show up on the buoy reports as rising. And high tide isn't till later this morning. And low tide not till this afternoon. Haven't looked to see the timing for arrival at So. CA beaches (I assume it lags by a few hours, since this is coming from north-to-south).

So ... I won't even be scouting till later today, when I can escape work.

I tried several northern monterey bay beaches @ yesterday's low tide. Found no erosion spots. Several others also came away with meager results. One fellow got a gold ring. But .... in-so-far as pockets of targets .......... it wasn't happening yesterday.

Maybe I shoulda tried the southern Monterey bay beaches ?

Any word on what's going on in Southern CA ? (although I'll probably be sick for asking )

Hey Tom & George,
Wednesday the 17th I did a recon at 3 beaches in the South Bay and came home with a sad sack. Big waves, no wind, little downhill current. Today (Friday the 19th) went down to take a look and what do you know?...Big waves, no wind, little downhill current....the beach is eroding back for sure, but where is it eroding down?....might try later today when the tide drops a bit, or tomorrow with the help of some wind before the swell backs off.

Jerry
