A primer gale formed under New Zealand on Fri (7/5) with 26-27 ft seas aimed northeast roughing up the oceans surface in preparation for the stronger main gale that developed Sun-Tues (7/9) with seas building to 39 ft aimed well northeast. Swell building on Tues (7/16). Beyond a series of mostly small gales are forecast developing in the Southeast Pacific Mon-Tues (7/160 with 28 ft seas aimed east-northeast, then again Wed-Thurs (7/18) with 32 ft seas aimed ENE, and maybe again on Sat-Sun (7/21) with 25 ft seas aimed NE. Something to monitor.
