Tuesday's surf - man I am ready for Fall

Tuesday looks rideable but I don't think it will be that great of a surf day.

The same small mix of S-SW energy and background short period WNW swell will continue to leak in.

Average spots will be around knee-waist high. Standout SW facing breaks and the good combo spots will be around chest high on inconsistent sets.

Shape will be on the soft side, particularly as we hit the high tides, but it will be surfable...and may even have a couple of halfway decent sections on the good sandbars at the low tides. I just wouldn't hold your breath waiting for the big sets.

Winds are forecast to be light and variable through the morning with some increasing W winds around 10-12 knots for the afternoons. There will also be some increasing humidity from Julio down in the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California or whatever you want to call it). With the extra humidity it will be worth watching the conditions later in the evening, the heavier air and potentially cooler temps inland may let us get some late evening clean-ups over the next couple of days.

your forecast are wrong bro, Tuesday has a huge NW swell about 8 ft in the santa barbara area. Learn to understand forecast before you start to go talking like you know everything buddy.

Yea bro, wrong again. Carp point was about 5ft around hi tide this afternoon in the sb area. Are you able to predict where that came from smart ass.

Anonymous, if that really is your real name, ;) obviously you are right and I am wrong...I am just not really sure why you are bringing bitterness to the blog...especially if you actually got a few waves that were better than you thought they were going to be. Hell man that is like winnng the lotto.

Looking back through the data I just have to call a bit of BS on your 5-8' wave heights...I could see maybe chest high on sets up at Carp...and I think that is being generous considering that C-street (which is waaaaaay more exposed) was barely hitting chest high+ around the same time during Tuesday afternoon and that was thanks to mostly blown out junky windswell glunking together with the leftover swell.

Anyway despite my disbelief I really hope you did score. Sometimes junky swell mixes just comes together magically...maybe this is on of those times.

Who knows maybe tomorrow you will find a unicorn in your backyard and it will be carrying a special helmet that gives you a sense of humor again...see what I mean, Magical!
