Big waves are in the surf forecast and they have called the Mavericks Surf contest on for Friday Jan 24th. Good luck to all the contestants; looks to be the largest surf we have seen this season yet with up to 30 foot surf on tap. Read some media hyping 60 feet, but my data shows something more like 4 meters @ 19 sec. That indicates big but not 60 feet. The rest of the exposed coast lines will see plenty of 12 to 15 foot Westerly surf; too much for many spots but some secret zones may have there day as well. Santa Cruz will see a lot of this W swell with head to double over-head surf; bigger at select spots. The swell drops a little but still pumping on Saturday but then a new W swell comes in Sunday that is just a little smaller than the 1st peaking out at 18 foot at exposed areas and 5-10 foot in Santa Cruz. A third West swell arrives Tuesday and then the trend goes smaller.
