Wednesday morning, (the first day of 2014), the swell will continue to crank out healthy, 295-300 degree, long interval surf, in the shoulder to head high range for the better West facing beaches.

A 7 foot high tide will ring in the New Year at 8:24AM, so don’t feel guilty about sleeping in a little bit tomorrow. That tide will race out through the day so timing will be of the essence.
