Shark Update: Besides the 25 great whites spotted Sunday in San Clemente, there were also new sightings Monday in San Clemente when 20 sharks were seen in the area, including a 10-12′ great white that was reeled in by a fisherman on the pier and allegedly another fisherman reported a shark estimated to be 16-20′ in length, (Holy S#$T that’s Jaws size)!
For Thursday morning we’ll see a very slight bump in size as a new pulse of smallish SW swell rolls into the picture from a 200-205 degree angle with 14-16 second intervals. It will be inconsistent in the AM but should have a hair more oomph on Friday. This should deliver sporadic waist high sets for beaches with a look at the SW.

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.

One day, you could be riding four-footers all day and the next, you might be facing a glasslike surface with nary a ripple.

To avoid wasted time and unproductive trips to the surf, it is essential to have access to reliable information on surf conditions.
