Friday's Surf - Waiting for new WNW swell

Friday will still be on the small side for most areas despite the new WNW swell starting to filter into the Northern Counties later in the day.

For the morning expect a slightly better mix of small SSW swells and a touch of local NW windswell.

Most spots will be in the knee high range...but with a few more waist high waves starting to push through at the better breaks. A few of the standout spots, with more exposure to the WNW will have some waist-waist high+ sets.

Winds look good for the morning, mostly light and variable for most areas to light/moderate offshore near the passes and canyons up around North LA, Ventura, and Santa Barbara.

After lunch start to look for some of that new WNW swell (280-300) starting to creep into SB and Ventura. It won't do much at first but size will start to build as we head towards sundown. There will probably be a few fun sets sneaking in before dark. Other spots further south won't see much increase in size on Friday.

Look for bigger WNW surf on Saturday.

Here are the tides for Friday

04:54AM LST 4.9' High
11:18AM LST 1.5' Low
04:46PM LST 3.9' High
10:58PM LST 0.9' Low
