Wednesday's Surf - Clean and fun

Wednesday is looking like a surf day.

Our surf will drop a touch as we move into Wednesday and the mix of S-SW energy slowly fades and the local NW windswell backs off.

Most spots with some exposure will be in the knee-waist high range throughout the day with a few chest high sets on the morning tide push.

Top spots, mostly in OC and Northern San Diego, will have some waist-chest high waves with some chest-shoulder high sets on that same tide push.

Winds are forecast to be really light tomorrow...mostly light/variable to a little bit of light offshore flow in the morning. Afternoon winds are forecast to be light as well...coming in out of the W but staying below 10 knots for most of the day.

While it won't be huge I do think it is going to be sort of fun tomorrow...particularly with the right gear. I would try and get on it around the bottom of the low tide (around 8:30am) then surf for a little bit as the tide fills in and brings a few bigger and more consistent sets. The combo beach breaks with good sandbars will likely have the best shape but you may find a few fun ones on the better lower tide reefs as well. I would still try and bring the small wave gear...basically boards that work well in waist-chest high waves...that way you can make the most out of your session while you are waiting for the bigger sets.

As promised here are the pictures of the "ugly stick"...is it not beautiful?
