Things are getting active in the NPAC. We may see some smaller N and NW swells being generated this week.

That is way too far out to have any certainty at all. Still, it is interesting to see.
The Loma fire has burned almost 4,500 acres and is now 81% contained. Shout out to all of our fire fighters working hard out there. The fire is no longer visible from Santa Cruz, as it is burning down toward Santa Clara on the far side of the hill. But there are still many local residents out of their homes. Apparently, some base humans are out and about soliciting donations for the fire victims, under the name of Cal Fire, illegally and pocketing the money. Don't give to these guys.
