Eddie Would Wait

Don’t let these filthy, funky, onshore conditions get you down. The North winds may have destroyed today’s session, but you’ll have plenty of time to make up for it this coming week. Look for conditions to dramatically improve as the winds clock around to the Northeast tomorrow and stabilize into a moderate trade wind pattern through next Monday.

A slight Northwest reinforcement peaks on the Waimea Bay buoy tonight, then fades through Wednesday. The surf will be biggest early, with swell conditions of 9.2 feet at 12.3 seconds (312°) forecast for 7:00 a.m. Dead winds are also forecast for tomorrow morning, before the trades clock East.

Thursday’s swell got a lot of hype, but the latest forecast doesn’t seem to provide enough oomph for the Eddie. Although Eddie would wait, Thursday’s surf will still be enormous, and the Bay will likely be packed early as light East-Northeast winds will provide excellent conditions for the peaking swell.

Also, be on the lookout for forerunners Wednesday, as the surf rises quickly through the afternoon into the evening. The swell is currently forecast to build from 1 foot at 22.2 seconds at 6:00 a.m. to 8.9 feet at 19.2 seconds by 6:00 p.m.

If the long-term forecast holds, solid surf will continue through next Tuesday, with swell heights hovering above 8 feet the entire time.
