HURRICANE WATCH: The Eastern Pacific has quieted down and no tropical activity is expected for the foreseeable future.
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 swell will start off with OH sets in the AM and from there it will even get bigger with the top, deep water spots going DOH, (and possibly even bigger than that).

The conditions look good with winds out of the NE/NNE in the 3-8 MPH range until noon and mild 2-4 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 76 degrees.
Tuesday morning looks a bit smaller, but by smaller I’m talking way overhead sets at the top West facing spots. Things slow down further in the afternoon but we’ll have solid swell all week long.
Morning high tides will be your friend!

The conditions should be okay early with variable breezes in the 1-4 MPH range until noon and then strong onshore winds, out of the West whip up and continue into Friday. The air temp dips to 67 degrees and there’s a 20% chance of rain.
For Fridaymorning we’ll see a combination of short interval wind swell and some fresh, potent NW ground swell in the OH to DOH range for the better West facing breaks. Unfortunately we’re anticipating “Victory at Sea” conditions all day long.
