Two magic words invested with the power to transform the slumpiest Santa Barbara spot into a spitting little barrel machine.
Two words I've never believed in, given their grunionish rarity in SB.
Well, Adam Wright's surf forecasting website Solspot just grabbed me by the throat, lifted my toes off the ground and told me that it found my lack of faith disturbing.
He's calling for sick southern hemi storms to hold in California's wave window, delivering swell north MAYBE until next Saturday.
Think of malevolent Antarctic seas gagging out sustained 40 foot swells. Think of those swells cleaning up and organizing as they race north through saline. Think of those swells hitting the shallows, heaving up, getting hollow and ... SPAT!
So, basically, this means some CRITICAL knee-high sections at Dev.
