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.

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. To avoid wasted time and unproductive trips to the surf, it is essential to have access to reliable information on surf conditions.
