Hurricane Watch There are currently no tropical systems across the East Pacific basin, and none are expected to develop over the next few days.
For Thursday morning we’ll see a little something in the form of NW wind swell from a steep angle of 310 degrees and 8-10 second intervals. This should dish up waist high + wind peaks for the exposed West facing breaks. In conjunction with that energy there will be some small, but potent SW swell rolling in from a liberal 220 degree angle. The S/SW facing breaks will see sets in the waist high plus range.

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. Any surfer who is interested in going beyond the most basic level of surfing will have to develop the ability to interpret waves and environmental conditions. 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.
