Waves for the weekend – Happy 4th of July!

Looks like it will be a surfable weekend…nothing huge on tap but there will be a few fun rideable waves at the better exposed spots. More importantly the weather and the winds should be pretty good…mostly light and variable throughout both days (just a little bump in the afternoons).

Surfwise we are going to have a mix of SW swells, some local windswell, and some very background leftover tropical energy.

Saturday will be a little bigger with a lot of waist-chest high waves at the average spots and some bigger chest-shoulder high sets at the standout S facing breaks and best combo spots.

Sunday will be closer to knee-waist high at the average spots and chest high+ at the standouts.

Looks like OC and San Diego will have the biggest surf this weekend…mostly South OC and North San Diego. It won’t really be worth fighting traffic to get to those areas so if you aren’t close already then you might want to just stick around your local breaks. With the light wind and S swell pushing in warmer water again it should make surfing smaller waves a bit more bearable. Try and get it on the tide push in the morning…you will have some better consistency (and are more likely to find parking).

That is about it for the next couple of days…have a great holiday!

Seemingly, never ending surf - amazing.
