Thursday morning looks even smaller with waist to chest high sets in the AM and a continued fade into the afternoon.

For Friday morning the swell will continue to drop and leave us with the smallest surf we’ve seen in quite some time. The top West facing breaks will dip into the waist high + zone.

A nearly 5 foot high tide just before 7AM won’t do us any favors. Might be time to break out the SUP and see if there are any Sharks moving in this year!

For Saturday morning things will start off on the slow side, but we do have some fresh NW energy scheduled to build in through the day. This new swell will move in from a 285-295 degree angle with 14 second intervals.

A high morning tide coupled with a slow building swell will make for a less than exciting dawn patrol but look for some scout sets to start showing up in the afternoon and continue to gain steam later in the day.

The conditions look okay for the morning with light and variable winds in the 1-4 MPH zone until noon and 8-10 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp bumps up to 69 degrees.
______________________________________________________________________________

For Sunday morning that swell will peak and produce head high to overhead + surf from that same 285-295 degree angle with 14-16 second intervals. This will be in effect for the West facing breaks only. South and SW facing beaches will be much smaller and less consistent.
