Today’s Slideshow brought to you by our friends from Kandui Resort in Indo




As you can see, we’ve redesigned the site and I hope you’re pleased with the new look and feel of it. There is a definite learning curve for the site management so please be patient as I get things up to speed over the next month or so. If you have any other suggestions on ways to improve swellmagnet, feel free to drop us an email Thx, the SM TEAM.

I’m already tired of hearing all the whining about the closeouts at the beach breaks. We go through the same thing every year, and it’s a well known fact, that until we get a huge swell, or a prolonged torrential downpour, we’ll have to either surf reefs and points or pray for combo/wind swells. Until then it is what it is. My game plan is to just not even look at it, (at least twice a week ), paddle out, and just make the best of it. Plan B… golf as much as possible and day dream about surfing somewhere else!

HURRICANE REPORT – No noteworthy Tropical activity going on right now.

Thursday morning looks smaller as what’s left of the NW energy backs down into the waist to chest high range. The good news is that some fresh wind swell will move in, and we’ll also see some long interval, S/SW swell start to show up later in the day. Not quite the wave bonanza I was hoping for, but there should at least be something to ride all week long.

The conditions will deteriorate a bit but still remain fairly calm in the morning. We’re anticipating 2-6 MPH breezes out of the West until 11AM and afternoon onshores up into the 8-10 MPH range. There’s also a 20% chance of rain. Look for a high air temp of 61 degrees.

Friday morning will be bigger, but the main story line will be the winds. Top West facing breaks will see surf in the chest to shoulder high range and we’ll also have a meaty, little, 190 degree, SW swell in play. That energy will have 16-18 second intervals and should be good for chest high plus sets, (with a little pop to them). The winds may just kill it, but if you can find a sheltered spot it might be really fun. Strong onshores will haunt the coast both Friday and Saturday.

The conditions will be poor with stiff Westerly winds in the 12-25 MPH ALL DAY long. There’s also a 10% chance of rain. Look for a high air temp of 61 degrees.

Saturday morning will see more of the same with a continued mish mash of swell, but once again, the onshore winds will take center stage. Find that kelpy, wind protected cove and you might get a little something, but I wouldn’t bank on it.

The conditions will not cooperate, with all day onshore breezes in the 10-18 MPH range. Look for a high air temp of 60 degrees.

Sunday morning will be smaller but the ocean should clean up dramatically. Top West facing breaks should see waist to chest high sets and the SW energy should be good for the same… just a bit less consistent as it fades out through the day.

The conditions will be much better with offshore winds, out of the NE, in the 6-12 MPH zone until 11AM and standard 8-12 MPH West winds in the afternoon. Look for a high air temp of 65 degrees.

The current water temps are as follows – Newport 63 degrees, Huntington 65 degrees, the South Bay showed as 64 degrees, Santa Monica 63 degrees and Malibu 63 degrees.

I’ll be back on Thursday with the next update.
