Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
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 in the 1-3 MPH zone until 1around 2PM and a mild 5-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. 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 but much smaller).
