For Saturday morning that SW energy should be in full stride with chest to head high plus sets at most breaks that get a peek at the South and OH at the most exposed South facing breaks. When the sets roll in they should have a little punch to them with 16-18 second intervals from a 190-210 degree angle.
We’ll also be looking at continued NW wind swell from a liberal 290-295 degrees in the waist to possibly chest high range.

The conditions should still be pretty good as high pressure starts to break up. The winds will be light and variable out of the East in the 1-5 MPH zone until noon and 8-10 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp dips to 75 degrees.
For Sunday morning we’ll see continued chest to head high plus sets out of the SW for the top South facing breaks. This energy will be begin a slow methodical fade over the next couple of days as the intervals slow down to 16 seconds.
Small wind swell will remain in the mix.
The weather and winds should make for another great beach day!

The conditions look fair with variable, 2-5 MPH winds out of the SE/SSE until 10AM and 6-9 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 72 degrees.
For Monday morning that SW energy will decline another notch as the intervals lessen to 14-15 seconds, the wave size dips again and the wait for waves between sets lengthens. Basically par for the course with a fading South swell. The better South facing beaches should still see some chest to shoulder high sets.

The conditions look okay with variable SE/SSE winds in the 4-10 MPH range until 10AM and 9-11 out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp hovers in the mid 70’s.
For Tuesday morning that South swell will be on its last legs with sporadic waist to chest high sets in the AM and a continued fade into the afternoon.
The better news is that we should see fresh, 12-14 second interval, NW wind swell weaving its way into the more exposed West facing breaks. The angle is a fairly steep, 300-305 degrees so many spots could be overlooked.
