it's still NW, with 0 local wind. Not in forecast, same as the 1.2m last night, lasting 2 hours...

Northern half of strait was cooking overnight, though the sea state recorded at HB was a mix of NW and SE

went by WB at 1245. HB was 0.7m at 12noon.

Was there a break? yes. It was small but there were rides and you could surf it.
Wind was just direcly NW of WB, white caps too. From UBC lookout there was 0 wind, no break at iona at all. very localized.

But still at 10-12 noon there were rides at WB.

Next time, I'll give it a try. Sisters-Ballenas was strong.

I've seen that weather pattern once before and heard of it occurring another time (swell rolling down from far up strait). it set up some nice conditions at Wreck, was like 3ft @ 6s without a breath of wind at the beach. Today, the white caps you saw near the beach were probably N/NW from the outlet of Howe Sound? Possibly a bit of combo swell rolling out of there? :D I remember you checked WB once when Pam Rocks was N 45kn and there was maybe a foot of shorebreak, but i wonder how much swell shows up at wreck from N 53 G 66kn which occurred last night.
