Hurricane Watch There are currently no active systems across the East Pacific Basin, and no tropical development is expected for at least the next 24-48 hours.
For Monday morning that steep South swell will remain the star attraction as it jumps up to 15-16 second intervals from that same 175 degree angle. The most exposed South facing breaks should see waist to chest high + sets with some larger waves at the standouts!
* 175 degrees is a sideways angle and will bypass all but the most exposed breaks.

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.
