Waves for Friday: More Combo swell

Friday will definitely be a surf day…the good combo spots will be fun, peaky, and likely overhead+ on the sets.

So if you saw the random morning update then you know that the W swell portion of the combo swell was lagging this morning. The good news is that the swell has arrived and it should stay pretty healthy as we move into Friday.

Check out the Buoys...

In the water we will have a mix of WNW swell (275-295) and S-SW swell (190-210). Most spots will stay consistently in the chest-shoulder high+ range while the best combo spots, mostly in San Diego and Orange County, see overhead+ sets.

Winds are supposed to be light in the morning, particularly through the dawn patrol. Expect light/variable in most areas and light SE winds through LA, Ventura, and Santa Barbara. W-WNW winds around 10-15 knots will develop through the afternoon.

Personally I will be heading out the door as soon as I get my morning stuff done. Maybe a quick camera check for the tide/wind shape before I leave but not more than a couple of minutes. I still think that the reefs and beach breaks will be the most fun…points will be good too but these swells get so hollow on the good sandbars that I will be checking those areas first.

San Diego and OC will be the biggest and most consistent but expect plenty of fun waves through Ventura and La…with smaller but likely cleaner shape through the Santa Barbara spots.

Hope you score some tomorrow…I’ll see you in the water!
