Tuesday morning, (Christmas Eve), will be a bit smaller and less consistent, but nothing to sneeze at, as the solid surf continues to track into the West facing beaches. Once again the top West facing breaks will get the motherlode of energy with sets in the chest to hopefully shoulder high + zone and larger waves at the deepwater spots.
