SATURDAY Surf Forecast 

That NW wind swell is slated to deliver waist high + peaks for the better West facing breaks. The angle will remain at 300-310 degrees with 8-9 second intervals.

Although the winds look to be compromised, it’ll be about the best morning tide push you’ll see on paper… I’m making no promises in these tough times, but at least wake up and check the cams… you can always roll back over!
