For Friday morning we’re looking at some fresh, long interval, SW swell from a liberal angle of 200-210 degrees. This swell will fill in through the day and should get into most breaks with a peek at the South. The most exposed South facing breaks, like San O’ and the OC should see head high to OH sets by the end of the day.

The better West facing breaks should see waist to chest high waves with the possibility of some larger sets. This secondary swell is rolling from a 285-295 degree angle.

The beaches that are receptive to both swell directions should see some pretty good surf!

For Saturday morning we’re looking at continued NW wind swell from a liberal 290-295 degrees in the waist to chest high range and that SW energy will remain strong with chest to head high plus sets at the top South facing breaks.

The conditions should still be fair as high pressure starts to break up. The winds will be light and variable in the 1-4 MPH zone until noon and 8-10 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp dips to 75 degrees.

For Sunday morning we’ll see continued chest to shoulder plus sets out of the SW for the top South facing breaks. This energy will be fading through the day, but weather and winds should make for another great beach day!
