The conditions should be fine with E/NE 3-6 MPH breezes until 11:00AM and mild 1-3 MPH winds out of the West in the afternoon. There is 0% chance of rain in the forecast and the air temp jumps up to 69 degrees.
Friday morning will start off on the slow side but there may be some sporadic, larger scout sets sneaking as some fresh, W/NW energy fills in through the day. This energy will have some “Thump” to it with powerful 16-18 second intervals from a liberal, Westerly angle of 275-290 degrees.
The most exposed, deep water, West facing breaks should climb into the OH to DOH zone by days end.

The conditions look good with light and variable winds, out of the East, in the 1-4 MPH zone until 11AM and a nearly calm 1-3 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. There is a 10% chance of rain in the forecast and the air temp tops out at 64 degrees.
For Saturday morning the surf will be SOLID AGAIN with the best West facing breaks seeing OH to DOH sets and that will continue to pound the coast through the morning and then very slowly start tapering off a hair in the afternoon.
All of this energy will continue roaring in from that same 275-290 degree angle, (which means that the more Southerly facing breaks will continue to be receptive).

For Sunday morning that same swell will continue to provide beasty surf with the best West facing breaks seeing OH sets and that will back down through the day.
Tons of surf in the future too so get out there and get some!
