SURF FORECAST UPDATED 12-3-12
Well, after a long wave drought we finally got some surf we could sink our teeth into. While not an ideal swell for most spots, at least it was able to get the adrenaline glands pumping a bit, and give us a taste, of what is hopefully to come. Looks like it’s back to the driving range this week but another good burst of swell is inevitable so stay tuned!
By Tuesday morning the swell will dip into the waist to chest high zone and the tides look favorable for the dawn patrol.
