HURRICANE WATCH: The Eastern Pacific has quieted down and no tropical activity is expected for the foreseeable future.
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 280-290 degrees), in the shoulder to head high+ zone early, (for the top deep water beaches), and that should continue to strengthen quickly into the OH to DOH range.
A sheltered reef or point looks to be the best bet. Beach breaks will likely be daunting, unruly and walled.

The conditions look much better on the models today with variable breezes out of the East at 1-7 MPH until noon and mild Westerly winds at 2-5 MPH until dark. The air temp tops out at 68 degrees.
For Saturdaymorning the top West facing beaches will continue to dish up solid OH to well OH surf. The conditions look excellent so be ready to log some water time.

The conditions look excellent as high pressure builds in. We’ll see NE/NNE breezes in the 5-7 MPH range all day long, (stronger below passes and canyons). The air temp bumps up to a toasty 78 degrees.
For Sundaymorning the top NW facing beaches will dip another notch or two but still throw down shoulder to Head High waves with a few larger sneaker sets in the AM.

The conditions should be okay with N/NE/NNE breezes in the 1-8 MPH range until noon and 6-9 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp dips to 73 degrees.
By Monday morning we’ll see another round of potent NW swell fill in through the day. This energy will move in from a 290 degree angle with 16-18 second intervals. The morning may start off a little on the slow side but we’ll likely see some scout sets early and then an onslaught of overhead sets. From there it will even get bigger with the top, deep water spots going DOH, (and possibly even bigger than that).

The conditions look a little questionable with winds out of the West in the 2-7 MPH range until noon and 6-10 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp hangs tough at 73 degrees.
Tuesday morning looks smaller, but by smaller I’m talking well overhead sets at the top spots. Things slow down further in the afternoon but we’ll have swell all week long.

I’ll be back on Friday to tighten things up!
