Friday’s Surf – Holy wind Batman!

Friday is not going to be much of a surf day. It may start ok but strong W-NW winds move in fast and things get nasty by the afternoon.

New NW windswell moves in with a small (and likely overpowered) building SW swell.

The NW facing breaks will get into the overhead+ to well overhead range but will have poor windblown shape. NWS is issuing Gale Warnings for many areas tomorrow so it will be very sloppy once winds get up to speed.

The S-SW facing spots will be smaller, mostly knee-chest high with some rare bigger sets showing at the combo spots. These breaks will have fair shape in the morning but will start to get junked up by the building winds in the afternoon.

If you have to surf stick to the S-SW facing spots…you will be giving up a lot of size but conditions will be waaaaaay better. The best bet will likely be on the inside sections of those protected spots…but you will want to bring your small wave board.
