Waves above 20' on Friday

NOAA is calling for consistent waves of 15 ft. on Friday with average wind speeds of 15 knots. Other reliable sources are calling for occasional sets of 24 feet from 6 am on Friday to 19 feet as late as 8 pm on Friday (click on 'Charts' at prior link). Will be surprised if the Coast Guard lets 'em run on Friday. If they operate on Friday, the BOM pegs out at between Beaufort Force 7 and 8 and between BOM 5 and 6, a very rough ride. In surfing lingo this is what they call, "Epic, dude." or "Eddie Aikau, brah."

Know Before you Blow,
Aloha, Brad
