Eddie Update: 2-7-11

Swell along the North Shore of Oahu has pulsed continuously over the past week ranging from six to 15 feet, predominately out of the WNW, and the majority of breaks have been firing. Monday, February 7, sees a solid pulse of building 12- to 15-foot, Hawaiian scale swell. This will gradually taper off through the week. After several weeks of above average winter surf, the jet stream shows a quietening phase ahead, possibly extending through mid-February, so nothing “Eddie”-sized on the immediate horizon. With three weeks remaining in the holding period, organizers will continue to monitor developing systems. Aloha!
