The conditions look to be poor with all day long onshore winds. The West winds will start off light at dawn but quickly pick up through the morning and get as high as 20+ MPH in the afternoon. There’s also a 50% chance of rain and we’ll see an air temp of 57 degrees.
By Saturday morning the conditions should/could clean up for the morning session. The surf will dip in size but we should see chest to head high waves through the morning. The tide hits a whopping 6.45 feet at 8:07 which will definitely figure into the equation.
