SURF FORECAST UPDATED 1-10-13
For Friday morning the swell will hold and dish up some head high to overhead sets for the top spots. Not sure if the jumbo tide will help or hurt the beach breaks, but it will definitely slow down the points and reefs for the morning session.

The conditions look pretty crummy with W/NW winds in the 8-17 MPH zone until 10:00AM and then slowly ease up into the afternoon. We’ll see a chilly air temp of 54 degrees.
By Saturday swell will back down, but we’ll still see some chest to shoulder high sets for the top spots. Another brutal high tide will max out around 9:00AM, but conditions shold be mostly clean throughout the day.

On Sunday morning things will taper off quickly leaving us with waist high plus sets for the top spots. Tide is in play for mid morning and will undoubtedly kill the smaller surf when it peaks at 9:44AM.

For Tuesday morning things will remain on the small side with waist high sets for the better West facing beaches. The tides look favorable for the morning session, but there’s just not much swell out there, (maybe bust out the LB or a thick Fish).
