Friday’s Surf – Rinse and Repeat

Friday is looking rideable but won’t be a great surf day.

We are going to see a mix of SW swell (200-220) with one swell fading and another similar sized swell filling in. NW windswell will be on the rise throughout the day but it looks like the wind is going to come along with it.

Wave heights will hold around knee-waist high at the average spots. The standout SW facing breaks, like those in San Diego and South OC, will have some inconsistent chest and shoulder sets. A few of the better windswell breaks will be around chest-high+ as well but the shape won’t be all that fun.

Winds are looking ok...mostly variable with a touch of onshore texture for the morning. W winds around 10-15 knots for the afternoon. A chance at some eddy in the morning...but not super strong.

Overall it is going to be pretty similar to the last couple of days...with a low-drained out tide in the morning and better shape as it fills in around midmorning. As always it will be race with the wind and the tide...to see if shape can improve before the bump gets it.

Here are the tides...

02:20AM LDT 4.7 H
10:11AM LDT -0.3 L
05:16PM LDT 3.7 H
10:23PM LDT 2.4 L

Easy solution to your problems, ditch that little thruster and get a short little fat board with some foam, turns this windswell shit into fun times, join the party,I've been having tons of fun!

the guy bitching about HB not having any waves is a kook. If you actually knew what was up and when to look you'd find waves dumb ass.

HAHA 'Surf-Jock'...that's funny. This place is usually so well mannered! That guys does sound a little high strung, though.
I've lived and surfed in HB my whole life and this past winter was just plain bad.
Bring on the southswells!
Thanks for the killer blog, Adam.

"when I was a kid" is the key here... "when I was a kid" the hallway in my house was HUGE, my bed was HUGE and the waves... well you guessed it... nothing like being a 60 lbs (wet) chicken to see the world soooo big... then you grow... :P Do like it was suggested and get a little more foam... hanging on to your board from your teenage years don't cut it no mo'! :)
