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.
There is some smallish SW energy showing up on the radar but although long interval it will remain a feeble knee to waist high for the better South facing beaches. *These small Southerly pulses will continue for the next few days, but don’t expect anything bigger then waist high through the rest of the week.
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!

The conditions look okay with variable 1-6 MPH winds until noon and then go Westerly at 6-9 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp dips to 66 degrees.
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.
An early morning high 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 a mild 6-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp bumps up a hair to 67 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.

The conditions look about the same with continued light and variable winds in the 0-5 MPH zone until noon and 9-11 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air tops out at 68 degrees.
Monday morning that swell will back down, but the better West facing breaks should still be good for shoulder to head high sets through the morning and slowly fade into the afternoon.
