So far the surf in September has been less than spectacular, but way better than most of August. The south Pacific has stirred a bit, but looks like it is settling down, as is typical late in the summer season. Perhaps we will see a few more decent swells, but really we are waiting for the north to turn on. In a tropical sense, it has, with four named storms roaming about the ocean, with another budding off the Mexican coast. We could begin to see some of these systems recurve to the east as they are currently drifting north. Mixed with a little arctic juice, and we could see some decent west swells developing by mid month. Currently it is wait and see as high pressure is still the dominant pattern in the north. Waiting and watching for the turn toward autumn.
