For Saturday morning we’ll see a similar scenario with continued waist high plus wind swell. The tide jumps up to 5.35 feet at 9:04AM and will likely shut or slow things down quickly.

The conditions should be fair with variable winds in the 1-3 MPH range until 1PM and 5-7 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 69 degrees.
Sunday morning should see a slight increase as steeply angled, 10-12 second wind swell moves in from a 300 degree angle. The top West facing breaks should see waist to chest high peaks. Once again a late morning high tide will slow things down a bit but the early bird should be able to pick off a few before the tide peaks.

The conditions look okay with variable winds in the 1-5 MPH range until 11AM and 9-11 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 68 degrees.
For Monday morning we’ll finally see a little increase in size as some medium, (12-14 second), interval swell creeps in from a moderately steep 295-300 degree angle. This will be good for some chest to head high sets for the best West facing breaks.
The winds are projected to be light onshore but that shouldn’t muck the sea surface up bad and the early morning tides look excellent with a subtle tide push.

The conditions should be tolerable with variable winds in the 1-5 MPH range until 11AM and 4-6 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 65 degrees.
For Tuesday morning we’ll continued swell out of the W/NW with some 14-16 second interval waves tracking in from a steep 300-305 degrees. This should be good for shoulder to head high plus sets at the most exposed West facing breaks.
Tides and conditions look good through the morning and with our Winter swell season days numbered you better make it count!
