For Monday morning we will see another increase in size out of the West. The top spots should see shoulder to head high sets and the conditions look okay on paper.

*Be wary of the urban runoff. The water will undoubtedly be filthy, so if you do surf, be sure to wear ear plugs and rinse you nose, ears and body thoroughly as soon as you get out of the water. Obviously it is advised to stay high and dry.

For Wednesday morning we’ll see the coast lit up with muscle flexing swell in the DOH (Double Overhead) to nearly TOH (Triple Overhead) range. All of this energy will be in the 275-290 degree range and really be packing some heat.

For Thursday morning we’ll see our biggest surf of the season so far. The top West facing breaks will be thumping, pumping and dumping with DOH (Double Overhead) to TOH (Triple Overhead) plus.

With the drop in the jet stream these swell will continue to have quite a bit of West in them, (275-295 degrees), and will definitely muscle its way into every nook and cranny on the coast.
