About the Swell Magnet Forecast

One of the most exciting–and yet most challenging–aspects of surfing is the sheer variety of waves and weather conditions that affect the entire surfing experience. Any surfer who is interested in going beyond the most basic level of surfing will have to develop the ability to interpret waves and environmental conditions. This is important for ensuring both a safe and enjoyable experience.

The main difficulty lies in predicting how exactly the ocean and the environment will behave at any given time. One day, you could be riding four-footers all day and the next, you might be facing a glasslike surface with nary a ripple. Conditions can change drastically from day-to-day and even within the space of a couple of hours. To avoid wasted time and unproductive trips to the surf, it is essential to have access to reliable information on surf conditions.

Sites such as Swellmagnet.com offer up-to-the-minute surf reports that are essential to all California surfers. The company relies on an extensive network of surf cams and surf experts in order to monitor the precise surf conditions on any given day. All information is collated and analyzed by qualified surf specialists, with the resulting data being provided to the public via the Swellmagnet site.

WEDNESDAY Surf Forecast 

The surf will jump back up into the Head High to WOH zone and continue to deliver meaty sets throughout the day. The swell will roll in from a Westerly 285-290 degrees with impressive 17-18 second intervals. There’s also a nice little tide push through the early morning and the high tide at 11:26AM shouldn’t slow things down too much and hopefully conjure up a little extra shape at the West facing beach breaks.
