Swell/Surf Outlook
A storm that previously moved through the Labrador Sea and far North Atlantic earlier this week has sent a nice shot of NW/NNW swell to the region. NNW swell from this storm system has peaked but will continue to linger through Friday into Saturday.

The next system of interest is currently NW of the island. This storm will track toward Iceland Friday/Saturday. Winds associated with this storm will set up a reinforcing shot of NW/NNW swell for Saturday afternoon before peaking on Sunday. Swell from this hits head high to a little overhead Sunday. A few bigger sets are likely around the optimal tides. Light/gentle S winds/good conditions expected.

Next Update: This will be the final update.
