Sunny and in the 60s, with a good swell in the water. Who could ask for anything more? But to top it off, there was a light crowd, perhaps due to the US-Canada Olympic hockey match. I love it when TV sports empty the lineup.
See...otter?Surfline: 3-5 ft. WNW(265-295) swell is our source of surf. Plenty of waves on tap this afternoon with solid 6-10'+ surf making it through. S wind is creating slightly textured/crumbly conditions, but most areas remain plenty rideable. Buoy 46012: 11.8 ft @ 14.3 sec.
~ ~ ~Yesterday the California coast was under a tsunami advisory after the huge earthquake in Chile. Per the National Weather Service, "Tsunami advisories mean that a tsunami capable of producing strong currents or waves dangerous to persons in or very near water is imminent of expected. Significant widespread inundation is not expected for areas in an advisory." So of course we drove to Half Moon Bay at the anticipated time of arrival to watch from a safe distance. But nothing happened. And that's a good thing.
