Tuesday’s Surf - Big high tide

Tuesday is looking rideable but the combo of generally weak swell and nearly 6’+ high tide in the morning is going to shut down the dawn patrol.

In the water we will have a mix of fading NW windswell and a touch of WNW and SW background energy. Most breaks (once the tide drops) will have surf in the knee-waist high range while the standout windswell breaks will have some chest high sets.

Conditions will be clean early with mostly E winds around 10 knots. SW winds around 10+ build in through the afternoon.

Personally I don’t think it will be much of a surf day for me…with the dawn patrol shut down by the tide I think shape will fall apart (as the wind builds) before the tide can get low enough to let my local spots work. If you have to surf, don’t drive very far for it…just hunt around for a good sandbar close by…those will likely be your best bet.
