For Monday morning that NW energy will hit full stride with head high to OH sets at the best West facing breaks. The angle will be from 285-290 degrees + and the intervals will remain at 12-13 seconds.
The Southern Hemi swell will dip a hair to 15 seconds but should continue to throw inconsistent chest high sets at breaks with good SW exposure.

The conditions look pretty good for spots that like a Southerly wind direction with E/SE/SSE breezes at 2-8 MPH until 11AM and 7-11 MPH winds out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 68 degrees
For Tuesday morning looks like another solid day for waves. We will see that med interval NW energy peak with head high to OH waves for the best West facing breaks. That SW energy will continue its slow fade but still contribute to the cause with sporadic chest high sets.
We will also see another round of solid SW energy enter the fray. This swell won’t start filling in until later in the day but will carry with it muscley, 16-18 second intervals from a fairly steep 185-190 degree angle so the South facing breaks will be the call for Wednesday!

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. 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.
