For Monday morning that NW energy will peak with head high to OH + sets at the best West facing breaks, (18-20 second intervals from a 290-300 degree angle). Long lines and plenty of power will be the rule of the day so the points and reefs will likely be the best call. Regardless, there will be no shortage of surf for the West facing breaks.
