Windswell to build, then fade over the weekend. Swell from Storm #2S to fade over the next few days. A gale developed on Wed (4/29) just east of New Zealand with 38 ft seas aimed northeast over a small area.  Small swell expected for the weekend (5/9). And another gale is forecast for the Southeast Pacific Wed-Thurs (5/7) generating 42-44 ft seas aimed east-northeast. Sideband swell possible long term. And another small gale is forecast for the same area Sat-Sun (5/10) with up to 42 ft seas over a tiny area aimed east-northeast. More sideband swell possible.
