For Saturday morning things look quiet through the AM but some fresh NW energy will start to filter in later in the day.
Until that swell shows we should see leftover steep South swell, coupled with that more liberally angled SW energy, dish up waist high + sets for the better South facing breaks. Beaches with a peek at the SW should also see a little action and don’t forget about our mysto swell that refuses to die yet doesn’t show up on the buoys!
Sunday morning looks solid for the best West facing breaks…. read on!

The conditions look fair with variable winds in the 1-3 MPH zone until noon and 6-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at a balmy 78 degrees.
For Sunday morning the NW energy should be in full swing for the exposed West facing breaks. The surf will roll in from a steep 300-310 degree angle with 19+ second intervals. This should be good for Head high + sets and WOH, (Well Overhead) waves for the most exposed West facing beaches. Due to the steep nature of this swell only select spots will be receptive. The best bet would be heading down to San Diego or Baja Norte, which should be all lit up Sunday into Monday!

The conditions look fair with variable winds in the 1-3 MPH zone until noon and a mild 5-7 MPH out of the S/SW in the afternoon. The air temp drops off to 72 degrees.
For Monday morning that steep NW energy will remain the only show in town with head high + sets at the most exposed West facing breaks. The intervals will remain a beefy 16-17 seconds so there will be still plenty of power out there. This energy will slowly taper off into Tuesday.

The conditions look fair with SE/SSE winds in the 4-8 MPH zone until noon and 6-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 67 degrees.
For Tuesday morning we should get one more shot in the arm with chest high + sets in the AM and that will really drop off as the day wears on. Same steep angle and the intervals will dip down to 14 seconds.
Long term it looks like we’re in for a bit of down time after Tuesday but it’s only a matter of time before solid Winter swells start to appear with more frequency!

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.
