Strike Mission Update: The swell has downgraded a bit and where the forecasts were calling 5 feet at 16 seconds at the peak of the swell on Wednesday the 20th, that number has dropped down to 4 feet at 15 seconds. I suspect the swell will downgrade some more. I’m positive we’ll have swell it just remains to be seen if this is a head to overhead swell or a 10-12 foot face swell. 4 feet at 15 seconds would roughly translate into 10 foot faces here. The underlying good news is, given the difficulty of catching the waves at outer Miramar, a shorter period swell means the waves are moving a little slower and thus slightly easier to catch…a real advantage on a slabby wave like out front. I can say for sure there will be enough swell for Freight Trains to be breaking. Crowds are really light right now and hopefully it will stay that way for us and our guests….but with that…we have room! The other good news is we have early morning low tides… So call your boss, buy some flowers, beg borrow and steal…we’ve got swell on the way. Did I mention the wind is offshore all day and the water is 82 degrees?
