Outlook
Up some ---

A gale developed in the far Southeast Pacific on Mon (5/23) with 32 ft seas aimed north with secondary fetch forecast in the same area Tues-Wed (5/25) producing additional 32-34 ft seas aimed north. Swell arriving Mon (5/30). Up north the local North CA pressure gradient and north winds are building and are to peak Friday with winds to 30 kts producing short period north windswell for exposed breaks, then fading some into the weekend before dissipating. The model are now hinting at a building gale pattern under New Zealand on Thurs (6/2) with seas to 34 ft over a decent sized area. Something to monitor.
