* 3-9-17 – SWELLMAGNET PHONE APP USERS – I finally made some progress today and was promised that the APP will be available again within the next few days! Thx for your patience!
Every now and then modern technology fails and some better than advertised swell slips in through the cracks. Fortunately today was one of those days and along with it were Santa Ana winds and all day long perfect conditions. I thought I was being generous calling for chest high plus sets but some of the top West facing breaks saw OH sets. Sometimes it feels so good to be wrong. Hopefully the magic continues into tomorrow…
For Saturday morning the models things are looking rather bleak especially for the morning session as high tide and meager swell combine for lack luster waves. Top spots should go waist high plus on the sets but tides will once again weigh in on the AM surf, (today was much bigger than anticipated with no real rhyme or reason so definitely check the cams in the AM).
* Spring forward! Put your clock one hour ahead Saturday night… we’re getting some longer days in the books!

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.
