Real Time Observation Report: Heavy Swell West Coast

From the West Coast I can report, visually that is, that the sea is very "choppy" with quite a number of "white horses". A steady SSW wind is adding to the choppiness. The swell is not so big as yesterday, but the ride will be bumpy, splashy and to my mind very wet. The boats already out to sea was quite spectacular with their seaward runs, sometimes disappearing completely in the spray. As I have said the swell is not as high as yesterday but it is not an even swell due to the choppiness.
If you are not an old hand on the West Coast, rather enjoy the last day of 2012 on dry land...
