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!

The conditions could go either way as the winds models have been flip flopping between North and North East over the last few days. Take a look for yourself at these projections. If there’s East mixed in there tomorrow it should be really good, if a straight North wind is dominate the sea surface may get screwed up a little bit. I do believe though that Santa prefers a NE tail wind! The air temp dips to 62 degrees.
For Friday morning the swell will drop off quickly through the day but dole out chest to maybe shoulder high sets at the best West facing breaks on the right tide.
* Looks like a subtle tide push through the prime morning hours.

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.
For Saturday morning the swell will continue to fade and drop down into the waist to maybe chest high zone for the first time in a LONG time!
