Friday’s Wind – this sucks

Friday is not going to be a surf day.

The good part of the WNW/SW swell mix will drop on Friday only to be replaced by junky local NW windswell. Local winds are expected to stay steady out of the WNW-NW around 10-15 knots for the morning and then boost up to 20-knots by the afternoon. A few scattered showers will push through as well.

So basically we are going to see onshore winds throughout the day...and even if they lighten up for the morning they will have been blowing all Thursday night...so any potential for surf will be pretty much hacked to pieces, except at the protected spots that won’t be able to pull any of the swell in anyways.

If it wasn’t blown out we could still expect some surf around waist-chest high at the average spots...and a few shoulder high sets at the standout NW facing ones.

This sucks. I would give you the tides but it won’t matter. Hopefully we will see things start to shake out better for later next week (as some new SW swell starts to arrive).

Since there is crappy surf to report maybe you wouldn't mind updating your surf sites descriptions?? Specifically I was wondering about Ventura Point and Mussel Shoals: best swells, angles, etc. I love reading those...
