For Monday morning we’ll see both the wind swell and the SW swell hold. The SW will be strongest in the morning and start a slow fade later in the day. Overall not really much to hang your hat on but when you turn into a beggar you will gladly accept a few crumbs during desperate times!

The conditions should stellar with high pressure setting up camp for a couple of days. Most spots will see offshore winds in the 2-11 MPH range until noon, (with much stronger gusts below the passes and canyons) and 10-13 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp heats up to a toasty 78 degrees.
For Thursday morning all energy will back down quickly leaving us with small SW swell and a quickly fading NW wind swell. The better West facing breaks should see waist to chest high surf.
