Thursday’s Surf – Who dialed up the longboard playlist?

Thursday will be surfable but I think you are going to want to bring your small wave gear.

In the water we are going to have a mostly fading mix of WNW and SW energy. There will be a very small pulse of new SW swell starting to fill in late in the day but I don’t expect it to do much before sundown.

Wave heights are going to hold in the knee-waist high range for most areas. Standout breaks may see some lucky chest high sets on the lower tide…but even those will be on the inconsistent side.

Weather looks good with mostly light/variable to light offshore conditions in the morning. All areas see W winds around 10-12 knots by the afternoon.

No real “best” spots tomorrow…just spots that are a little better than others. I would look for the biggest surf to hold through San Diego, and at maybe a few other WNW standout areas, but none of the bigger waves will be worth driving around for. Plan on breaking out the small-wave boards…and sticking close to home so you don’t waste any of that gas, (which is now going for a holy-shit $3.73 a gallon).
