For Monday morning the best West facing breaks will see an increase in size as some fresh, 16-18 second interval, 290-295 degree energy moves in and puts the top spots in the head high to overhead zone as it fills in through the day.
A massive high tide around 8AM will definitely slow things down, but conditions should remain clean all day long as high pressure continues to locks things down.

The conditions look excellent for the AM with 4-10 MPH winds, out of the NE/NNE until noon and mild 5 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp top out at 75 degrees.
For Tuesday morning that swell will already be on the way out as size and intervals start a slow fade through the day. The better West facing breaks will see chest to head high sets from that same 290-295 degree angle through the morning and taper off throughout the afternoon.
Once again the morning high tide will be relevant, but conditions should remain clean all day again before high pressure checks out of town.
