SURF FORECAST UPDATED 11-18-12
As you can see, we’ve redesigned the site and I hope you’re pleased with the new look and feel of it. There is a definite learning curve for the site management so please be patient as I get things up to speed over the next month or so. If you have any other suggestions on ways to improve swellmagnet, feel free to drop us an email Thx, the SM TEAM.
HURRICANE REPORT – No noteworthy Tropical activity going on right now.
Monday morning should be a little bigger, with 12-14 second interval swell moving down the line from a steep 305 degrees. The better West facing breaks should be in the chest to shoulder high plus range.
We’ll also see continued, smallish, SSW energy, from a 195 degree angle, in the knee to waist high range.

By Tuesday morning the SW energy will be insignificant and the NW swell will drop off quickly. The best West facing breaks will dip into the waist high plus zone.

The conditions look a little sketchy, but shouldn’t be too bad. We’re looking at variable breezes out of the North at 1-4 MPH until noon and West winds to 12 MPH until dark. We’ll see a high air temp of 65 degrees.
Wednesday morning will see surf in the waist high plus zone for the better West facing breaks for the AM, with some small, inconsistent, SW energy also in the mix. The good news is that some new, NW energy will start to show late in the day and be in play for Thursday morning.

The conditions will be mediocre, with early, Westerly winds in the 2-5 MPH. They won’t get up to much more that 10 MPH in the afternoon, but onshores are onshores. Look for a high air temp of 67 degrees.
Thanksgiving Thursday morning should see a slight bump in size for the West facing breaks as we see some fresh, shoulder to head high sets for the better West facing breaks. There will also be some waist high plus sets out of the SW so it’ll be a good morning to go work up an appetite for a big Thanksgiving dinner.
