The conditions look fair with light and variable winds out of the South in the 1-3 MPH zone until 10AM and then those pick up to 10-12 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at a balmy 80 degrees.
Saturday morning looks pretty good if you can get to a South facing break. There should be some nice chest to head high plus sets at the most exposed South facing beaches. Any place with a structured bottom should do well. The waves will be powerful, with long intervals and lots of water moving around, (and the beach breaks may be a little walled).

The conditions look tolerable with light winds out of the West in the 1-3 MPH zone until 10AM and then those pick up to 10-12 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 81 degrees.
Sunday morning should be another pretty good day for surf, with powerful, long interval South swell pushing into the exposed spots. Long interval sets in the shoulder high to overhead zone will be the order of the day. Nothing real BIG, but lots of punch with this swell. Tons of riptides out there folks, so if your not a seasoned veteran stay on your toes out there!!!
