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.

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.
