SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED on 7-9-2019
HURRICANE WATCH: Cosme barely discernible while Barbara passes south of Hawaii
Cosme is now a barely definable feature located well to the southwest of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. No impacts to land are expected as this remnant circulation drifts to the northwest in the coming days.
Elsewhere across the eastern Pacific, no tropical development is likely through at least the middle of the week.
For Wednesday morning this swell will be on a slow fade but dish up waist to chest high sets in the AM and get less consistent and smaller as the day wears on. The swell will continue to roll in from a 210 degree angle and have 15-16 second intervals in the morning.

The conditions look fair with variable 1-5 MPH winds out of the South until noon and then 7-10 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp bumps up to 71 degrees and there’s a 10% chance of rain.
For Thursday morning we will see fading waist high + SW swell from 210-215 degrees with 14-15 second intervals for the most exposed South facing beaches.

The conditions look okay with 1-5 MPH variable winds out of the South until noon and then 7-10 MPH out of the SW in the afternoon. The air temp tops out 71 degrees.
For Friday morning we will see smaller surf as the Southerly energy wanes, (210 degrees at 12 seconds), and we get a slight boost for the West facing beaches with some less than thrilling NW wind swell from 310 + degrees and 7-8 second intervals. Looks like waist high + for the exposed beaches.
Some new swell will slowly start to creep into So Cal later in the day and it looks like it should pack a little punch. This energy slinks into town from a 215 degree angle and has impressive 21-22 second intervals but keep your expectations low… there may be some decent sets but Saturday and Sunday look much more interesting.

The conditions look about the same with variable 1-5 MPH winds out of the South until noon and then 9-11 MPH out of the SW in the afternoon. The air temp tops out 74 degrees and there’s a 10% chance of rain.
For Saturday morning we will chest to shoulder high surf out of the SW from 195-200 degrees with 18-19 second intervals. The top South facing breaks will be the best call, (and should see a fair share of head high + sets), but there is enough West in this swell to get into the beaches with a peek at the SW.
NW wind swell will continue to dish up waist high + peaks from 310 degrees with 8 second intervals

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.
