Looks like another miss for surf conditions for the Rip Curl Pro this weekend… But, looking ahead. The rest of the week starting Wednesday looks more promising.  Wednesday sees the arrival of a mid period swell from a low off the Aleutian Islands for a 4 foot swell with  11 second period sustaining itself for a couple days… Then, big south swell forecast for the weekend.
