For Wednesday morning we’ll see another weak day of surf as we remain in the knee to waist high zone.
* The tides are a bit more lenient for the morning crew but high enough to squash the small waves at its peak.

The conditions excellent with NE/NNE winds in the 4-14 MPH zone until noon, (stronger below passes and canyons), and timid, 2-3 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at toasty 74.
For Thursday morning no major changes are anticipated. We’ll see more knee to waist high surf for the top spots with small blips of energy out of the SW and NW.

The conditionslook pretty good again with offshore winds in the 3-11 MPH zone until noon, (stronger below passes and canyons), and mild 2-4 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 69.
For Friday morning we’ll finally see more size and strength again as some liberally angled NW energy tracks in from a 285-295 degree angle with 14-16 second intervals. The best West facing breaks will dish up shoulder to head high plus sets as the swell fills in through the day. Things could start off slow early but there will be hope on the horizon!
* There’s just a minor tide surge in the morning and even the peak high tide around 11AM is not unreasonably high. All systems go!

The conditionslook fair + with E/SE winds in the 2-3 MPH zone until around 1PM and variable, 2-4 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp dips to 65 degrees.
For Saturday morning that same swell from 285-295 degrees will deliver shoulder to head high plus sets for the best West facing breaks. Due to the Westerly angle of this energy at least a little swell will leak into the South facing breaks.
Conditions, surf and tides all look good on paper so keep your fingers crossed.

For Sunday morning that NW energy will be on the fade with shorter intervals, less consistency and smaller sets. The top spots should continue to see some fun chest high plus sets through the morning and back down further in the afternoon.
