Beware of the Urban Runoff – It is advised to stay out of the water for 72 hours following any measurable rain fall. It’s always a roll of the dice, especially after a major downpour. The threat of getting sick is very real, so if you do insist on taking the plunge be sure to use ear plugs and upon exiting the ocean rinse off in hot water, use some alcohol based ear drops, and a nasal netti pot rinse for good measure never hurt anybody.
For Monday what swell we saw over the weekend will be smaller leaving the best West facing breaks in the waist high zone.
An early minus tide will make things tough for the dawn patrollers.
