Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For Wednesday morning that swell will flex its muscles with head high surf at most West facing breaks and overhead + sets at the standout West facing beaches.
Tides, conditions and swell all look to be pretty good. Looks like it’s time to see how the sand bars react to a 16 second interval ground swell…

The conditions look great again with the wind models calling for 2-7 MPH breezes out of the NE/NNE until around 1 PM and those go 4-6 MPH out of the West throughout the afternoon. The air temp checks in at 70 degrees.
For Thursday morning we’ll see continued head high to overhead + sets at the better West facing breaks and then things look to get a bit stormy on Friday so cash in while you can!

The conditions look interesting as we start out with SE winds in the 2-6 MPH range until around noon and those kick up to 8-12 MPH in the afternoon. There is a 10% chance of rain and the air temp tops out at 67 degrees.
For Friday morning we’ll see some more powerful swell move in from a 285-290 degree angle with 16 second intervals. This should put the exposed West facing breaks into the OH to DOH range. Lots of wind and rain on tap so I’m inclined to believe that it won’t be pretty out there.

The conditionslook questionable at best with strong West winds in the AM and those are projected to ease to 1-5 MPH into the afternoon. There is a 100% chance of rain and the air temp checks in at 61 degrees.
For Saturday morning we’ll see that swell continue to dish up OH to DOH surf for the better West facing breaks. The angle will continue to have quite a bit of West in it so the less exposed breaks should see waves too. The winds should calm and the sea surface should clean up dramatically. The water quality may be compromised again so roll the dice and paddle if you’re feeling lucky!

The conditions, on paper anyway, should clean up for the AM with 1-5MPH out of the NE/NNE until noon and mild 3-5MPH breezes out of the West until dark. The air temp checks in at 63 degrees.
For Sunday morning that swell will back down a bit, but remain solid with head high to OH sets at the better West facing beaches.
