For Monday morning the NW energy will be pulsing in all day and put the top, deep water, West facing beaches into the overhead zone while the average breaks see shoulder to head high sets. Long intervals and a more Westerly angle should open the doors to all of the reefs and points up and down the coast. Once again, not a wave bonanza, but when you toss a starving man a piece of stale bread it still tastes pretty damn good.
