Waves are looking best for longboarders for Friday. Mid-morning's high tide will make it difficult for the smaller waves at most locations. A steady southeasterly wind will produce bumpy surface conditions for the day.

SURF REPORT FOR JUNE 6 – 8, 2014

Waves are looking small and best for longboarders for this morning. Late-morning’s high tide will make it difficult for the smaller waves at most locations. Winds will become more offshore for the rest of the morning.

Saturday’s outlook improves as a distant offshore groundswell source will produce enough fetch energy to build waves into the thigh- to waist-high range. I expect clean lines from an offshore breeze.

Sunday’s surf conditions should remain in the thigh- to waist-high range with clean conditions again from a steady offshore wind.

Ocean water temperatures are in the 76 degree range. Wetsuits won’t be necessary, but rashguards and sunscreen are now a must.
