Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For Wednesday morning we’re looking at continued, medium interval NW energy mixing with the shorter interval NW wind swell. We’ll see surf in the chest to shoulder high zone with some larger sets at the most exposed West facing beaches.
The tide’s a bit low early but shouldn’t do too much damage at the beach breaks.

For Thursday morning we’re looking at smaller surf in the waist high plus range for the best West facing breaks. High pressure kicks into high gear and all of So Cal heats up dramatically!

The conditions look excellent with NE winds in the 4-10 MPH range at most spots, (much stronger below the passes and canyons). The air temp skyrockets to a toasty 85 degrees.
For Friday morning we’re looking at some fresh, long interval, SW swell from a liberal angle of 200-210 degrees. This swell should get into most breaks with a peek at the South and put the most exposed South facing breaks, like San O’ and the OC should see head high to OH sets.
The better West facing breaks should see waist to chest high with the possibility of some larger sets. This swell is rolling from a 285-295 degree angle.
The beaches that are receptive to both swell directions should see some pretty good surf!
