For Monday morning we’ll see peaking, NW ground swell surf, with the best West facing beaches dishing up OH to WOH, (Well Over Head), sets from that same 285-295 degree angle, (with 16-18 second intervals).
Looks like NW wind swell will be in play too with 8-10 second intervals from that same steep angle of 310 degrees.
We’ll also see some Southern hemi background swell with 16 second intervals from a 200 degree angle.
Overall it will be a wave bonanza so shop around to see what’s working. There’s a super low tide in the AM and Spring Break is in the air for many schools. Should be an interesting morning.

The conditions look fair with S/SSE/SE winds in the 3-7 MPH range until noon and 8-11 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 61 degrees.
For Tuesday morning we’ll see a little dip in size, but there will be plenty of head high to OH peaks for the top West facing beaches as the intervals for that ground swell drop off to 14-16 seconds and the wind swell remains in play for the exposed West facing breaks.
NW wind swell and SW ground swell will continue to contribute so we anticipate another good day of combo swell up and down the coast.

The conditions should be decent again with variable winds in the 1-4 MPH range until noon and 7-10 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp bumps up to 64 degrees.
For Wednesday morning we’ll see that NW ground swell continue to fade and drop down to a mere waist to chest high and become less consistent. We will however see some fresh SW energy fill in later in the day from 200 degrees with 15-17 second intervals. While not a real chest thumping swell it will have a little pop to it and the most exposed South facing breaks should see some fun sets in the afternoon.

For Thursday morning we’ll be see some new, NW, medium interval swell fill in through the day and produce chest high plus surf for the better West facing breaks.
The SW energy, I mentioned from Wednesday, will peak and dole out chest high plus sets for any spot that has a peek at the SW and shoulder high plus waves at the top spots in the OC and San O’ areas.

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. Conditions can change drastically from day-to-day and even within the space of a couple of hours.
