We’ll have another cold front move through Friday night but this one will be surfless. Get ready because bigger waves are on tap for early next week. Look for the waves to get surfable on Monday with rib to chest high waves coming. The surf gets even bigger on Tuesday with rideable waves continuing Mon-Thursday.

Wednesday 4:30 pm Update

The waves have not really built any with the incoming tide push. The surf remains in the thigh high range with a moderate chop due to the 10 mph west winds. The approaching cold front has ground down to a snail’s pace so it doesn’t look like the offshore winds will be here before dark. If you’re desperate there’s still some waves similar to the 2 pm slideshow but if you can’i make it you ain’t missing anything epic.

Wednesday 2:30 pm Update

The waves are thigh high with an occasional hip high set. The water is super clear. There is a west wind, but it’s not that strong. The waves look best for longboarding, unless you are very light on your feet. Come on out – a lot of guys are not wearing any wetsuit at all.
