Monday’s Surf – A few fun ones before the tequila

Monday looks pretty surfable.

We will have strong mix of NW windswell and some fading SW swell holding at the summer spots.

NW facing breaks will be running in the head high to a few feet overhead range while the summer spots will have playful surf in the chest-shoulder high range with a few head high sets mixing in at the standouts.

The winds are looking decent through the morning…mostly light out of the S around 2-5 knots…maybe a touch textured for the Santa Cruz area but cleaner as you move up toward SF (and for a few of the central coast areas as well).

Onshore winds out of the W build in around 15-25+ knots by the afternoon.

Even though winds will be cleaner at some of the NW facing spots shape will still be a bit suspect thanks to the short-period nature of the NW swell. The summer SW facing breaks and good combo spots may be a bit more workable, particularly if the winds hold off through the morning.
