Saturday morning the swell will continue to crank out healthy 295-300 degree, long interval surf, in the shoulder to head high plus range for the better West facing beaches.

The conditions look fair plus with light and variable winds out of the East at 2-5 MPH until 11AM and calm 4-6 MPH onshore breezes until sundown. The air temp will top out at 72 degrees.
Sunday morning the swell will continue to produce shoulder to head high plus sets from that same angle of 295-300 degrees. An enormous high tide of 6.2 feet just after 6AM may help the shape a hair at the beach breaks but I wouldn’t bank on it. The points and reefs should be working mid morning through the rapidly dropping tide.

The conditions look fabulous again with 3-10 MPH winds out of the NE/NNE all day long. The air temp will top out at 75 degrees.
For Monday morning that swell should dip a bit through the day but another small, but potent NW ground swell will fill in throughout the day. The better West facing breaks will go chest to shoulder high but the high tides will be in play for the AM again!

The conditions will remain fantastic with NE/NNE breezes in the 2-8 MPH until noon and 6-9 MPH West winds in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at a 76 degrees.
By Tuesday morning that swell should be in full swing with long interval lines from a 295-300 degree angle. This one will be good for shoulder to head high sets for the most exposed West facing beaches.
With another long period swell on tap I’m not anticipating the shape to be any better for the beach breaks so try and find a reasonable point or reef, (giant high tides remain in the picture).

The current water temps Newport 58 degrees, Huntington 59 degrees, the South Bay showed as 58 degrees, Santa Monica 58 degrees and Malibu 58 degrees.
I’ll be back on Sunday with the next update!
