For Friday morning we’ll see some decent SW energy from a 185 degree angle with 14-15 second intervals put the top South facing beaches into the chest to shoulder high + zone. We’ll also see the last few twitches of Hurricane Eugene before he’s wheeled off to the morgue. It should be another decent morning for waves so enjoy at as we’re heading into a sluggish weekend!
Another scorching heat wave is moving in with 78-80 degree temps on the sand!

The conditions look fantastic with variable breezes in the 2-3 MPH zone until noon and 9-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. Looks like another heat wave will move in and the air temp climbs up to a smoking hot 79 degrees.
For Sunday morning we should have a little something to ride with a few straggler S/SW sets in the waist high range and we’ll also see some fresh NW wind swell work it’s way down the coast. Nothing really impressive, but the better West facing breaks should see waist high peaks from a steep 310 degree angle and 8-9 second intervals.

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.
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.

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