Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
Monday morning will be a bit smaller, but the West facing breaks will continue to produce Head High to OH + surf for the top spots. The conditions will go to sh#t again with stiff winds out of the NW in the 14-24 MPH zone all day long.
* It’s been a while since we’ve had any rain so beware of Urban Runoff! It is advised that you stay out of the water for 72 hours after any measurable rain fall. You guys should already know the drill… plus tomorrow looks like it will be blown out so it will be that much easier to refrain.
