For Monday morning the swell will continue to drop in the AM, but there will still be plenty of waves as the better West facing breaks continue to produce shoulder to head high surf.
It looks like we’ll see some fresh ground swell start to work its way into the fold late morning/mid day. This energy will be stronger than the last swell as it moves down the line at a 285-295 degree angle with 14-16 + second intervals.
