Big Picture

BIG PICTURE

Saturday 5/21/16

The Jet is weak and withery but there’s enough troughing in the 7 day outlook for us the ‘keep an eye out’. Highs still dominate.

Sneak surf peak…
The NS has been in a summery slumber for a week or so with no changes till May 30th WNW and then low odds for a bigger shot Sat. June 4th. High pressures have ruled but some storms do kick in toward end of May. Hang in. Country might be bigger than Town June 4th.

NPAC:

Recent-current: Flat to 1/2’ sets .

Next 1: A weak low formed Tuesday our side of the dateline; pretty close but it’s so weak the forecast tried 1 or 2’, but in fact WW3 didn’t claim anything and we did see diddly. This is what happens this time of year…wishful thinking.

Next 2: Around Wednesday the 25th a Low on the west side of a High pressure to our North compress and get some marginal gales pointing our way far up near Kamchatka. WW3 hints at a long lasting 2’ 11 sec NW around Monday the 30th. Don’t get hopes up.

Last 3: Low odds for a NW Sat 4th. A low races east from around the dateline with a high pressure dominating to our NE. The pressure gradient may work up some fetch as WW3 hints a 4’ 11 sec NW which would mean 4’ for select reefs…again, low probability.

SPAC:

The Jet has been set up for the most storm action in the Taz and far to the SE.

Sneak surf peak…it’s been rideable and fun for what seems like ages now and summer hasn’t even started. There are no sizable swells like the one we had a couple weeks ago but we do keep in the 2 and 3’ variety with a couple Taz and a couple SSE swells.

Recent and current: Some fun 3’ surf from the SSE with Sandy’s reaching 4’ earlier this week. Now we have some small new 16 sec SW mixing in from the Taz sea which will last a few days.

Next #1: This current SW replaces the SSE. The SW came from a storm force fetch back Wed 5/11-14th as the Low moved up the Taz sea. These swells get cheese grated by Fiji (~300 Islands) and Samoa (2 Big Is + 8 small ones) so this lessens confidence and often size and consistency.

Next #2: Another strong storm in the Taz Friday 5/20 gets huge surf to Tavarua a few days later and should bring small 3’ SW surf to us with 20 sec forerunners Thursday. Peaking Thursday with this event lasting into Saturday as it starts fading.

Last: #3: Saturday the 21st there’s tons of storms swirling but near to over NZL and we need the winds over water. But Monday the 23rd, a Fetch to the SSE of Tahiti sets up but much of this will miss us to the East. Sideband SSE swell should reach us Sunday, Monday-Wednesday the 29th-1st of June. WW3 is claiming a peak of 2.5’ 15 sec Monday so this would mean near 4’ local size or 1-2’ overhead. Some Taz SW of 2’ could mix. Trades are expected to be light, too from the 25th-June 1st.


Windward: Plenty Trades, plenty trade swells of 3’ average and no significant change in sight. The stationary High built this week with upstream winds developing esp this weekend. This lengthens the periods a hair which in turn refract a little higher near shore. Watch for possible 4’ sets later Sunday into Monday.

Tropics:
Nothing at over this 7 day forecast period.
