Friday’s surf – More smallish waves...but at least it is Friday.

Friday will be another day with decent conditions but small surf.

It won’t be totally flat...but expect to wait around for rideable waves even at the top breaks.

We are going to have a micro-mix of S-SW leftovers and some weak WNW energy (mostly local windswell).

This picture of the swell model is so boring that it makes me want to take a nap.

Wave heights are going to hold around ankle-knee high+ at most of the average exposed breaks. The standout S-SW facing spots, with good shallow sandbars (or reefs) will be in the knee-waist high range on sets...and there may be even a rare bigger set sneaking through on the tide swing.

Winds look good...mostly light and variable through the morning with overcast skies. W winds around 10-14 knots and clearing skies will push through during the afternoon.

Like the last couple of days it won’t be worth driving very far to look for if you find a peak close to home it would be good to jump on it before the building tide swamps it out. Small wave gear will still be the most fun...and if you can you might want to try and surf around the drain-out lower tide that hits mid morning.

Here are the tides...happy Friday!
