The days are getting longer very quickly this time of year. The increase in solar energy usually kicks off a few last blasts of winter for the California coast. Our weather has not been usual for the last few years. This is creating a lack of storms heading our way to generate swell. In fact, the South Pacific is currently more active than the North Pacific, so we will see more SSW swells than WNW for the next week or so. Waves are knee to Chest high at the top spots in Santa Cruz and waist to head high at exposed beaches. The trend will be smaller until Thursday when we get a bump in WNW mid-period energy. Some small scale SSW swells will be on tap for next weekend.
