Wednesday morning looks to be the money day for the week, but the payoff will result in only sporadic, waist to chest high sets out of the South from that same 185-190 degree angle. Spots like San O’ and the OC will be biggest and best, but I have to admit I’m truly sad that it looks like the Southern Hemisphere will all of a sudden looks to be our go to swell direction…

ABOUT THE SWELLMAGNET 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.

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.
