Happy 4th of JULY! This morning we’ll see a subtle bump in size with small pulses out of the SW with 14 second intervals from a 200 degree angle. The South facing breaks will be the best bet but don’t expect much more than waist high + sets with a few larger waves at the top SOuth facing breaks.

The conditions should be tolerable in the AM with Westerly breezes in the 1-4 MPH zone until 10AM and 7-14 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at a toasty 81 degrees.
For Saturday morning we’ll see continued waist high + NW wind swell and some steeply angled South swell fill in through the day. This Southerly energy will have some pop to it but roll in from a more sideways angle of 180 degrees with 16-18 second intervals. In a nutshell that means that only the most exposed South facing breaks will be privy to the energy. The OC and San O’ areas should have shoulder to head high sets later in the day as the swell gets more traction but Sunday should be more solid and consistent.

The conditions should be tolerable in the AM with Westerly breezes in the 1-4 MPH zone until 10AM and 7-14 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at a balmy 81 degrees.
For Sunday morning that South swell should hit full stride with shoulder to head high sets at the most exposed breaks. Don’t be shocked to see little or no surf at breaks without a good look at the South, most of this swell will whistle right on by.

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.
