Hurricane Watch The East Pacific remains devoid of any organized tropical features at this time.
For Monday morning we’ll see the NW swell dip down into the chest high range and remain on the same steep trajectory of 300-310 degrees. The SW energy will drum up chest high sets from that steep 175-180 degree angle and the intervals will dip to 14-16 seconds.
There’s still plenty of swell to be had, but the severity of the angles will make it a bit more challenging to find waves.

The conditions looks excellent with high pressure putting a firm grip on So Cal. We’re due to see offshore winds in the 5-10 MPH zone all day long, (stronger below passes and canyons) and the air temp jumps up to a steamy 90 degrees.
For Tuesday morning the South swell will remain relevant with waist to chest high sets for the exposed South facing beaches. Same steep 180 degree angle with slightly shorter 16 second intervals.
It looks like we’ll see another round of NW swell fill in from a steep 300 + degree angle and 14 second intervals. This should be good for chest high sets for the most exposed West facing beaches.

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.

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.
