SURF FORECAST UPDATED 11-2-12
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.
Wednesday morning should see another little bump in size as a combination of NW swell puts the exposed 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 1-3 MPH zone until 11 and afternoon onshores up into the 8-12 MPH range. Look for a high air temp of 71 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 61 degrees.
Friday morning will be bigger, but the main story line will be the winds. Top West facing breaks will see chest to head high plus, but the winds my just kill it. Strong onshores will haunt the coast both Friday and Saturday.
