For Sunday morning we’ll dip down into the waist to chest high zone for the better West facing breaks as the NW ground swell begins to fade. The aforementioned SW energy will remain in the conversation with sporadic waist to possibly chest high sets at the exposed South facing breaks.

The conditions should be great again with winds out of the NE/NNE in the 5-10 MPH range all day long, (stronger below the passes and canyons). The air temp hits a smoking hot 81 degrees.
For Monday morning we’ll see a NW ground swell, (280-295 degrees with 14-16 second intervals), which should dish up waist to chest high sets at the better West facing breaks.
In conjunction with that NW energy, we’ll see continued pulses out of the SW pitch in for some waist high + sets from 195-210 degree angle and 14 second intervals.
Beaches that are receptive to both angles could see some nice little wedges.

The conditions look excellent again with winds out of the N/NNE in the 2-8 MPH until noon, (stronger below the passes and canyons), and feeble 2-4 MPH breezes until dark. The air temp tops out at 78 degrees.
For Tuesday morning we’ll see another band of NW energy fill in through the day. It won’t be anything to jump up and click your heels together about, but there will be some some decent waves for the West facing breaks. Don’t expect too much at first light, but this swell will roll in from a Westerly angle of 280-290 degrees and put the better deep water spots into the chest to shoulder high plus range by mid morning.
The small pulses of SW energy we’ve been seeing all week will dip into the knee to waist high range with inconsistent sets from the same 195-210 degree angle.

Wednesday morning looks pretty solid with a slight uptick in the NW energy. The top West facing beaches should see chest to head high sets through the morning hours. The SW energy will remain in the mix as well with waist high + sets from that same angle.

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.

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.
