For Friday morning we’ll see that same ground swell continue to diminish with the intervals down to 12-14 seconds from the same 290-295 degree angle. The better West facing breaks should see some waist to chest high + sets.
NW wind swell looks to jump into the mix with 8-10 second intervals from a steep angle of 310 degrees. While not etched in stone it should kick up chest to head high peaks, (possibly even bigger at the stand out West facing beaches).
We’ll also continue to see some small, sporadic pulses out of the SW that will only be noticeable at the exposed South facing beaches.

The conditions look a little iffy, (see wind models). The air temp tops out at 65 degrees.
For Saturday morning – April Fools Day – we’ll see that NW ground swell on its last legs, dipping down to 12 second intervals and contributing waist to maybe chest high sets to the general cause.
*Based on what the winds do on Friday, we could have a nice bump in 10-11 second local wind swell enter stage right. The angle will continue to be severe at 310 degrees with 10 second intervals and the best West facing breaks should go shoulder to head high. Stay tuned!

The conditions look fair with variable winds in the 1-5 MPH range until noon and 7-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp climbs back up to 70 degrees.
For Sunday morning we’ll be reliant on leftovers with waist to chest high surf for the better West facing breaks, (smaller if the wind swell doesn’t pan out).
The good news is another solid NW ground swell will weave its way into the picture from a Westerly angle of 285-290 degree angle and muscley 18 second intervals. Don’t expect to see much consistency in the AM, but the Scout sets could start showing up in the afternoon.

Looks like NW wind swell will be in play too with8-10 second intervals from that same steep angle of 310 degrees.

For Tuesday morning we’ll see a little dip in size, but there will be plenty of head high to OH peaks for the top West facing beaches as the intervals for that ground swell drop off to 14-16 seconds and the wind swell remains in play for the exposed West facing breaks.

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.

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.
