For Saturday morning our current swell will be on the fade, but fear not, we’ll see some fresh NW energy come into play, with building surf through the day. The waves should be in the chest to shoulder high zone early and pick up some steam as the day wears on. The new swell will roll in from that same 300-315 degrees with 16-18 second interval. This will put the top spots in the shoulder to head high + zone later in the day, (OH sets at the exposed, deepwater West facing beaches).
Swell: The fading swell will start off in the chest to shoulder high + zone and the new energy will roll into the better West facing breaks with 16-18 seconds from that same steep 305-315 degree angle.

The conditions look fantastic with variable winds out of the East in the 1-3 MPH zone until noon and 3-6 MPH out of the SW in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 70 degrees.
For Sunday morning there will still be plenty of meat left on the bone as all energy backs down through the day. We’ll basically be seeing chest to head high surf with a few larger sets in the AM.
Swell: Same angle as the day before, 300-315 degrees, with waning intervals.

The conditions look pretty damn good again with variable winds in the 1-5 MPH zone all day long. The air temp dips to 67 degrees.
For Monday we will see fading ground swell out of the NW in the chest to shoulder high + range, (with a few larger sets mixing in when the tide starts to recede), for the exposed West facing beaches. There is a good chance we’ll see some shorter interval NW energy mix in and hopefully help to shape up the beach breaks.
Swell: The angle will continue from 300-315 degree direction and the intervals will decrease and chances are good that a little wind swell will enter the mix.

The conditions look great again with E/SE winds in the 1-3 MPH zone until noon and 3-5 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 66 degrees.
For Tuesday morning we’ll dip down into the chest high + zone as the NW ground swell continues its slow fade, and if we do indeed get that NW wind swell it might get fun at the beach breaks if you can work around another monster morning high tide.
Swell: The angle will continue from 300-315 degree direction and the intervals will decrease and chances are good that a little wind swell will remain relevant.

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.
