Solid new swell builds from 4-5' to 6-10ft x punchy 16 seconds into the evening. However, strong S winds blow today. Some points fire. Sunny and warm. Saturday still solid 6-8ft swell open coast with much lighter winds. A light to moderate SSE wind suggests some points continue cooking Cuz. Sunny and warm to almost hot. Sunday bumpy SW winds and an approaching mishappen front with funny aspect. Light rain in the evening in the south. Wobbly 4-5' surf open coast easing to 3' as winds puffs moderate SSW to S. Monday small to flat 2' surf with signs of new swell to 4ft mid to late arvi in fresh SSE to S winds, puffing strong into the evening. Partly cloudy and warm.
