Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
Wednesday, (Christmas Eve), morning may start off a bit 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, (it may show up earlier than expected but nothing’s etched in stone just yet). This will have fairly long 16-18 second intervals from a 295-300 degree angle and put the top West facing breaks into the head high to a few feet OH zone.
* At 10:06 AM we’ll see a 6.27 feet High Tide.

For Christmas morning we’ll still have some decent surf on tap with shoulder to head high plus sets in the morning, (larger waves at the best West facing beaches). There’s a nice tide push too so it looks like Santa is going to come through for those who have been nice!
