Surf's Up for the week of October 4, 2012

Published: Wednesday, October 3, 2012 at 05:21 PM.

Well surfers and surfettes, as I sit writing this report the surf is about 3- to 5-feet breaking on the north side of the pier. It’s looking fun a few days out but I don’t think it’s going to last. The computers are showing a decrease in the wave size as we get closer to the weekend. Thursday is looking fun with a small swell but a nice off shore; the best spot should be the north side of the pier
The weekend end is looking kind of small, but that can be fun on the right board — paddle boarding on a 2-foot wave is a good time. Right now it is looking like Sunday evening the wind will be coming up and out of the south, so this could be fun on the kites. As we go into the first of next week it is looking even smaller, but that could change with all the weather to the west of us. Hang in there!
