HURRICANE WATCH: The Eastern Pacific has quieted down and no tropical activity is expected through this week.
Thursday morning looks smaller with waist to possibly chest high plus sets, (for the exposed West facing breaks), as the NW energy fades through the day.

2015-12-03 Thu 09:53 PM 1.26 feet Low Tide
The conditions should be good again with winds out of the NE/NNE in the 2-7 MPH range until noon, (stronger below passes and canyons), and 6-10 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp dips slightly to 70 degrees.
For Friday we should see another jump up in size for the best West facing breaks. We’ll see 16 second interval NW ground swell, (from 285-295 degrees), in the chest to head high zone early, for the top beaches and that should continue to strengthen quickly into the OH to DOH range.
This swell isn’t looking particularly clean but should pack a wallop. A sheltered reef or point looks to be the best bet. Beach breaks will likely be daunting, unruly and walled.

The conditions look a bit iffy with West winds at 2-8 MPH until noon and continued onshore winds at 9+ MPH until dark. Not howling onshore but the texture of the sea surface may be a bit compromised. The air temp tops out at 67 degrees.
For Saturdaymorning the top West facing beaches will continue to dish up solid OH to well OH surf. The conditions could go either way but regardless there will be tons of swell out there.
