THE SWELLMAGNET SO CAL SURF FORECAST

More Mexican Right Point action!

Southern California Surf 4cast Updated 9-23-2022

The Surf Forecast will be updated Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. 

HURRICANE WATCH 

Newton to pass the Revillagigedo Islands before continuing into the East Pacific

Tropical Storm Newton continues to move to the west-northwest through the eastern Pacific. The storm will pass closely by the Revillagigedo Islands today before continuing out into the deeper and colder waters of the open Pacific Ocean, leading to an eventual decrease in wind intensity. This storm is not expected to directly impact land; however, shipping interests should closely monitor the storm’s progress.

Elsewhere, we are currently monitoring another area of potential development along the far southern coast of Mexico through this weekend.

SATURDAY Surf Forecast 

We’ll see some new South swell move in and dish up inconsistent waist to chest high sets for the better spots in the OC and San O’ areas from a 210 degree angle with 17-18 second intervals. The less exposed breaks will be smaller and less consistent, but will see an occasional set roll through.

SUNDAY Surf Forecast 

We should a little more size out of the SW, (210 degrees with 16-17 second intervals), but it will continue to be fairly inconsistent. The top spots in the OC and San O’ areas will see chest high + sets while the rest of the coast sees smaller and even less consistent waves.

The conditions look pretty good with variable 0-5 MPH winds until noon and 7-10 MPH breezes out of the W/SW into the afternoon. The air temp holds at 80 degrees.

MONDAY Surf Forecast 

Things don’t change too much as that inconsistent SW swell continues to get into the top South facing beaches and dishes up sets in the chest high to shoulder high + range. Other spots will be getting smaller, less consistent waves.

TUESDAY Surf Forecast 

The song  remains the the same with inconsistent sets out of the SW coupled with smallish NW wind swell. It should be another fun morning if you have patience. The top South facing breaks should remain in the chest to shoulder high + zone when the sets roll in and the combo spots should do a repeat of Monday. Nothing great but there will be some waves to be had.

The conditions look fair with variable 1-5 MPH onshore winds until noon and 7-12 MPH breezes out of the W/SW into the afternoon. The air temp holds at 83 degrees.

WEDNESDAY Surf Forecast 

We’re anticipating more of the same as the SW swell continues to put the top South facing beaches into the Chest high + range while other breaks get a fractional portion of that energy. Small NW wind swell will remain in the mix.

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.
