Today’s Slideshow brought to you by Brian McStotts



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.

Tuesday morning like looks another okay day for waves as the first, steeply angled, NW swell begins to fade, but some smaller, 12-14 second interval swell, from a 300 degree angle, fills in for the morning session. The better West facing breaks should see waist to chest high sets and beautiful conditions.

The conditions should be excellent again with NE winds in the 2-9 MPH zone until 1PM and light onshore’s into the afternoon. Look for a high air temp of 80 degrees.

Wednesday morning should see another little bump in size as the a combination of NW swell puts the expose breaks into the chest to shoulder high range. The weather will start to change dramatically but the winds are scripted to remain tolerable.

The conditions look fair with variable winds in the 2-6 MPH zone until noon and afternoon onshores up into the 10-16 MPH range. Look for a high air temp of 74 degrees.

Thursday morning looks smaller as what’s left of the NW energy backs down into the waist to chest high range. The good news is that some fresh, wind swell will move in and we’ll also see some long interval, S/SW swell start to show up later in the day. Not quite the wave bonanza I was hoping for, but there should at least be something to ride all week long.

The conditions will deteriorate a bit but still remain fairly calm in the morning. We’re anticipating 1-4 MPH breezes out of the West until 11AM and afternoon onshores up into the 8-10 MPH range. Look for a high air temp of 63 degrees.

The current water temps are as follows – Newport 64 degrees, Huntington 65 degrees, the South Bay showed as 65 degrees, Santa Monica 64 degrees and Malibu 63 degrees.

I’ll be back on Tuesday with the 5DAY 4CAST!
