On Tuesday (9/30) Northern CA had weak northwest windswell with waves waist to shoulder high. Exposed south facing breaks were waist high to maybe chest high from a weak southern hemi pulse. Southern CA was small with waves up the waist high at the better breaks from Santa Barbara southward to Los Angeles. The LA area southward had surf waist high an some to nearly chest high. Southward to San Diego waves were waist high with best spots to maybe chest high. The North Shore of Oahu continued with little waves at waist to maybe chest high. The South Shore remained small with waves barely waist high. The East Shore was nearly flat at less than waist high. A little pulse of southern hemi swell energy from New Zealand continues working it's way into California with another one from Antarctica (due south of California) right behind it, but it too is small. More northwest swell is forecast for California and Hawaii by late week, possibly building into some semi-real swell if the remnants of extratropical storm Koppu develop as forecast off the Kuril Islands.
