The current series of WNW swells will provide fun waves through the weekend. Santa Cruz will enjoy waist to head high sets through Monday morning; little larger Sunday. Really small in Capitola and Cowells, but Cap could be OK for a 1st timer. San Francisco will be 3-8ft with clean conditions in the mornings. A new 8-12ft W swell arrives late Monday and full on Tuesday; unfortunately rain and SSW winds are also forecast for Monday and Tuesday. Weather improves and swell holds in the head high range for Santa Cruz and 6-10ft for exposed beaches into mid-week.
