Tuesday morning looks to be a smaller version of Monday with that steep NNW swell coming down the line sideways from that brutal 315 degree angle. If I had the time I would drive down to Baja to score some good point break waves… Santa Ana winds continue to promote all day offshore conditions.

For Wednesday morning things will be smaller with inconsistent waist to possibly chest high sets at the top spots. The good news is that some new, but still steep, 305-310 degree ground swell will start filling in late in the day and should be in play for Thursday morning.

For Thursday morning the top West facing breaks should go chest to shoulder high on the sets. Once again, due to the steep nature of this swell, it will completely bypass all but the most exposed West facing beaches.
