The surf on Thursday (or dealing with the post-Halloween candy shakes)

Thursday is looking playful…and probably fun on the right tide. The SW swell that started to arrive on Wednesday actually came in a little punchier than I thought it would so there is some ok size and consistency.

It is fairly SW in swell angle which means that Catalina and San Clemente Islands block the swell from North OC and the Channel Islands block the swell from a lot of Ventura and Santa Barbara. You will find the biggest surf if you hunt around South OC and most of San Diego. There is also some NW energy out in the water as well so the more exposed beach breaks should be fun as well as the points and reefs that like the SW swell.

Since North OC is my main stomping ground I will probably look for some waves somewhere south of HB. Winds and tides should be ok in the morning…so go hunt around at the exposed breaks…you should be able to find a couple of workable peaks tomorrow.
