Thursday's Surf - A few more waves

Thursday looks surfable...again nothing great...just sort of summer-fun-ness.

We will have a mix of slightly stronger S-SW swell energy from a couple of different sources along with some WNW energy from a couple of other NPAC sources (You can tell I am putting a lot of scientific effort into this one). Basically it will be the same sort of swell mix we have had over the last several days but with a touch more energy.

Most spots will be in the knee-waist high range with a few waist high+ sets on the lower tides (and the good sandbars).

Standout breaks, mostly the SW facing combo beach breaks, will see some chest-high surf...maybe even a couple of inconsistent shoulder high sets. San Diego will be the biggest and most consistent surfwise since it is a bit more exposed to the swell mix. Other combo spots along the other regions will be fun as well...just not as consistent.

Here check out the CDIP model...this is what it is going to continue to look like tomorrow morning.

Winds will be ok...there will be a touch of eddy at times. So watch for light S-SW onshore wind through SD and Orange County...spots further north should be clean but may have a touch of NW texture still lingering as well. All spots see onshore winds around 10-15 knots by the afternoon.

I wouldn't spend a lot of time hunting around for surf...just plan on mostly the summertime love. Small, soft, but with occasional playful waves and nice weather. Like I said it won't be great but it is always better than work.
