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 will definitely be more solid and consistent.

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 beaches without a good look at the South… most of this swell will whistle right on by.
The NW wind swell will persist with waist high + peaks for the top spots from a steep 310 degree angle and 6-8 second intervals.
