Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For Saturday morning the surf will continue to fade, but dish up plenty of size with head high to well OH sets for the better West facing breaks.
* High tide comes into play for the AM – 08:09 AM 6.28 feet High Tide
* Be wary of the urban runoff – the threat of getting sick after all that rain remains very real.

For Sunday morning size will dip down to a more user friendly shoulder to head high + zone but beware of larger straggler sets that are excited to punish any newbies!

The conditions look excellent based on todays projections with variable winds out of the East in the 2-7 MPH zone all day long. There is an 10% chance of rain and the air temp tops out at 62 degrees.
For Monday morning we’ll see some fresh swell from a 300-305 degree angle that will launch the better West facing breaks into the head high to OH range but that’s just the “lemon next to the Pie” as Bear from Big Wednesday would say. A much larger swell will be roaring down the coast shortly after and should be in full effect by Tuesday morning.

The conditions look tolerable with 2-5 MPH breezes out of the West until noon and a fairly mild 7-9 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. There is 0% chance of rain and the air temp tops out at 64 degrees.
For Tuesday morning some HGH like energy will fill in through the day and it looks like it might be potent as early as first light. This new swell will strut in with both guns blazin’ and shoot up the coast with a 5.8, deep water swell, sporting 16-18 second interval waves from a Westerly angle of 285-295 degrees.
This will get into every nook and cranny again, and put the best West facing breaks into the OH to DOH + zone. Once again… look before you leap or you may find yourself in a heap of hurt!
