The standout beaches should dish up chest high to OH sets. Many beaches will see very little swell from this one, with the OC and San O’ regions getting the bulk of the energy.

The conditions look okay until around 11:00AM and then stronger SW winds whip up into the afternoon. The air temp holds at 66 degrees.
SATURDAY Surf Forecast
It looks like there will be a few crumbs of South swell bouncing around out there with that 175-180 degree angled swell dishing up some really inconsistent, waist high sets.
Okay.. for a little change of pace we’ll see some NW wind/pseudo ground swell move in from 300-310 degrees with 13-14 second intervals. Nothing too impressive, but most of the West facing breaks have been snubbed by the recent rash of steeply angled South swells. The top spots will be waist high + with an increase throughout the day and more size on Sunday and Monday.

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.
