“No Sleep till Brooks Street” – but it could be time for a nap after this weekend

“We’ve been monitoring a storm in the underworld for the past week now and it’s lining up perfectly to get the 54th Annual Brooks St. Surfing Classic in the water this weekend!” says Brandy Faber, Brooks St. Classic Contest Director. 

“Considering how flat it has been lately and how late we are into the Classic’s waiting period the forecasted SSW swell will be a much needed relief.”

Brook Street Classic 2014

This is what Surfline forecasts for Brooks St. this weekend: 

Building/peaking Saturday, holding pretty good size all day Sunday. Brooks should be in the shoulder-overhead range for the most part (4-6’ faces) with occasional sets up to a couple feet overhead. In terms of Southern Hemi swells, this one looks like it will be on the more consistent end of the spectrum. It’s also a pretty good direction for Brooks.

The NW swell-mix running may offer an occasional peakier wave, but should not have a negative impact on the size of the SSW swell.

Faber urges surfers to get down to Brooks bright and early Saturday morning to sign up as the contest will be starting early.
