For New Years Day morning things will start off on the small side with waist high plus sets for the better West facing beaches. The tide shouldn’t be much of an issue for the early bird and we’ll start to see some stronger NW swell fill in throughout the day. The most exposed West facing beaches should go head high to overhead by mid morning/early afternoon.
