Monday should be a little smaller as both the wind swell and South West swell back down. The Southerly energy will be dominant, but the size will drop and the wait between sets will increase. This fade will continue into Tuesday, but if you’re patient, there should be some fun chest to shoulder high sets rolling through at the best South facing beaches.

The conditions should be okay with variable breezes, out of the West, at 2-6 MPH until 11AM and then 9-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 69 degrees.
Tuesday will have a little something to tide but nothing to get real excited about. The better South facing beaches will see waist high plus sets in the morning and then that swell will be gurneyed off to the hospice in the afternoon.
We’ll also see some medium interval, (12-14 seconds), roll in from a 310 degree angle and put the best West facing beaches in the waist high plus zone.

For Wednesday we’ll see another day of smallish combo swell. Look for waist high plus surf most everywhere. Not flat but not too dynamic!

The conditions should be okay with variable 1-4 MPH breezes until 10AM and 9-13 MPH out of the West until sundown. There’s a 10% chance of rain and the air temp tops out at 66 degrees.
Thursday holds a little promise as some new, 8-10 second interval NW wind swell picks up and puts the better West facing breaks into the waist high plus zone. We’ll also see some super steep South swell with 12-14 second intervals roll in from a 180 degree angle. This swell will only pay a visit to most exposed beaches in the OC and San O’ areas. Top spots should dish up waist to chest high sets.
