Spent all day installing a new high definition El Porto cam, (Check it out!) so the forecast will have to wait until Tuesday. Everything looks to still hold true!
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!

Thursday morning should see another NW swell fill in as the previous on continues to fade. The increase will come from a steeply angled 300-310 degrees with 12-14 second intervals. Due to to steep nature of this energy it will bypass most breaks but the top West facing breaks should see chest to head high plus sets as the swell fills in through the day.
