Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For Monday morning the swell will continue to dish up head high to OH sets for the best West facing breaks. Conditions look good but keep an eye on the 6.69 ft high tide just after 8:30AM, it will obviously impact different spots in different ways so sizing things up correctly will be key to scoring good surf!

The conditionslook excellent with all day offshore winds in the 5-12 MPH zone for most breaks and stronger, (10-20+ MPH), below passes and canyons. The air temp heats up to a toasty 75 degrees.
Wednesday, (Christmas Eve), morning will start off very slow with remnant NW swell in the waist high plus zone at first light but some fresh NW energy will be moving down the line and fill in through the day. This will have fairly long 14-16 second intervals from a 295-300 degree angle and put the top West facing breaks into the head high to OH zone.
