SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED on 11-6-18
Xavier is now just a low-level circulation of clouds just off the coast of Mexico and is not expected to redevelop. The last of this system will move away from the coast of Mexico, over the next couple of days before completely dissipating. Rough surf will continue to impact portions of the western coast of Mexico through Tuesday. Otherwise, no additional significant impacts are expected as Xavier continues to dissipate.
In the Central Pacific, there are no organized tropical systems, and no development is expected through at least the end of this week.
For Wednesday morning we’ll see a slight increase out of the NW with a combo of 13-14 second interval from a super steep 310-315 degrees and wind swell peaks which should make for waist to possibly chest high range for the top West facing breaks. The South facing breaks look to pull in knee to waist high + sets from 210-215 degrees and 11-12 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.
