Saturday morning looks smaller as that NW ground swell heads off to mortuary but coughs up some waist to chest high sets in the AM before being officially toe tagged. High tides will wreak havoc on the dawn patrollers, but size and consistency should improve quickly by mid morning.

Tuesday morning looks similar with waist high + sets out of the NW, but more interesting is our first fresh pulse out of the Southern Hemisphere. Not real impressive, but the better South facing breaks will see a long, 14-16 second interval swell roll in from a 190 degree angle late in the day. Wednesday should see some fun little waist to chest high lines for the top S/SW facing 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.

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