For Saturday morning we’re projected to see some new, NW Wind swell enter the fray with 10-12 second intervals from a Westerly 290-295 degree angle. The surf should get up into the shoulder high to OH zone for the better West facing breaks.
The SW energy will be on the fade but continue to produce waist to chest high sets in the AM and slowly fade throughout the day with 14 second intervals from a 200 degree angle.

The conditions look like they may be tolerable early based on todays wind model projections. We’re looking at variable 1-5 MPH winds until 10AM and a blustery 10-18 MPH in the afternoon. There’s a 20% chance of rain and the air temp tops out at 63 degrees.
For Sunday morning we’ll see that same NW wind swell continue to dish up shoulder to head high peaks for the top West facing beaches.
The SW energy from yesterday will be inconsistent and on its last legs but some new SW energy will roll in from a 195-200 degree angle with 16-18 second intervals will fill in later in the day. The better SW facing spots should see some punchy waist to chest high sets in the afternoon.

For Monday morning we’ll be seeing the NW energy slow down more with 10-11 second second intervals from a 300 degree angle. The better West facing breaks should see waist to chest high waves in the morning and a continued fade into the afternoon.
The SW energy 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. Intervals will be at 15-17 seconds from a fairly liberal angle of 200 + degrees.

This is important for ensuring both a safe and enjoyable experience.

One day, you could be riding four-footers all day and the next, you might be facing a glasslike surface with nary a ripple.
