The conditions should be okay early with variable breezes out of the SE/SSE in the 1-4 MPH range until noon and then 4-8 MPH out of the West for a couple hours before strong onshores whip up and continue into Friday. The air temp dips to 65 degrees and there’s a 10% 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.

The conditions look to be poor with double digit howling, onshore winds in the 10-20+ MPH range all day long. Expect junky, mixed up, jumbled surf with tons of energy. The air temp dips to 64 degrees and there’s a 10% chance of rain.
For Saturdaymorning will be a bit smaller but the West facing breaks will continue to produce OH to DOH surf for the top spots. The conditions will clean up a bit but will likely still be a little messy.
