Tuesday’s Surf – Thanks for the holiday now get back to work!

Tuesday is looking like a surf day…and there is going to be a little more swell filling in on the mix we already have showing.

We will mostly see a mix of the leftover S-SW mix, and local NW windswell that we have been slogging through for the last couple of weeks. The morning will start off particularly slow as those swells continue to limp in. A new S swell (175-190) begins filling in with some long-period forerunners around midday and we should start to see some new sets arriving around sundown.

For Tuesday mostly spots will continue to hold around waist-high+…with just a few inconsistent chest high waves mixing in. Standout S-SW facing breaks and the top combo spots will be more consistently in the chest-high+ range with some shoulder high sets at times.

The best breaks in Orange County and North San Diego may even have some head high waves hitting by sundown…conditions won’t be that good…but maybe, just maybe if we all wish really really hard we can see some sort of a clean up as the new swell starts filling in. (I am not going to hold my breath or anything).

I still think that your small wave boards, fishy shapes, eggs, longboards…are still going to be the most fun on Tuesday. You might be able to get away with a more “performance” board if you weigh like 90lbs or something.

Conditions look decent as well…mostly light and variable through the morning, with a couple of small pockets of onshore texture. W winds around 10-12 knots for the afternoon.

Really I am getting a little more fired up about the peak of the S swell that arrives on Wednesday and Thursday…sizewise it should top out around a consistent head high…maybe even a few head high+ waves at the best spots…bout time we had a swell with a little ass in it.

Hope you guys had a great weekend!

Thanks Kaser 1!

I was looking at Surflines N. Pier cam, but it was their report stating 'ocassionally 7ft.' which I was doubting...

Anyhow, I couldn't be more thankful to Adam and everyone else here who contributes to the 'local' reports...
