Tuesday’s Surf – Turning up the volume a notch

Tuesday will be a surf day.

There will be more SSW swell (190-205) mixing in with our slowly fading SW swell (210-220) and a touch of the nearly ever-present but not particularly good for much local windswell. (well I take it back…right now there is just enough windswell to help peak up the SW’ers which doesn’t make it totally useless). Check out the latest CDIP model…



Average exposed spots that can pick up some of the S-SW swell mix will be holding around chest-shoulder high. Standout S facing surf breaks, mostly through South Orange and North San Diego, will have surf in the shoulder-head high range with inconsistent overhead sets.

Winds will be fairly similar to the last couple of days. Mostly light and variable with some slight onshore texture showing at the more exposed breaks through the early morning. Onshore texture will pick up by mid-morning and we can expect onshore W winds around 10-15 knots by the afternoon.

Size- and Shape-wise those South OC and North SD points and reefs are going to be the best call. They are more exposed to the swell mix, they have the sea-floor set up to hold together a longer wave (with less closeouts), and they will actually start getting a bit more consistent as the new SSW swell fills in. Too bad the contest is shutting down access to Lowers but the other breaks around the region should be fun as well. I think this swell mix will be worth driving around a bit…not a ton…but enough to find a something a little more fun.

Probably the best spot in the area. Everyone should go there

If you think your comment/suggestion will add more to the lineup, think again; its Malibu.

Report: not nearly as good as down south, and very inconsistent (30 min +). If you're just getting started, you'll have more fun surfing 'Sunset'.

Peace

You all don't know anything about knowing where the surf is. Yea down south is good, but Malibu has been really fun. 3rd point was about 4-5 this am. So for al of you who don't know shit about surfing, don't be talking.

Went for an evening run at Crystal Cove, here in OC. Pretty beautiful waves at near high tide ~ 6pm. Was a damn shame no surfers were there and even bigger shame I no board.

4-5 at 3rd Point, eh?!? ..and you know shit about surfing?!?!

If I wanted inaccurate reports, I'd frequent Surfline.com. You're a flat out KOOK if you feel 3rd Point was 4-5ft on Mon & Tues morning!
