Thursday's Surf - zzzzzzzzzzzz

Thursday is again not looking like a surf day. There will be some rideable waves here and there as we move around the high tide but overall there isn't going to be a ton of swell in the water.

We are going to have a mix of mostly leftover SW energy and a few small WNW blips and weak local windswell.

Average spots will be in the knee high+ range while the better exposed breaks see some knee-waist high+ sets on the lower tides. Standout breaks down in San Diego will have some chest-high+ sets sneaking through at times.

Winds are looking light again in the morning but we may have some small texture from that on/off fog bank that has been holding over the area. Look for NW winds 10-15 knots through the afternoon. Here is a NWS weather map...you can see the fog in yellow.



Again I am not really excited about the surf tomorrow...I think it is going to be small and soft and have a lot of tide issues through midmorning. If you don't mind the longboard or fishy shapes you might be able to get a couple of semi-workable ones, particularly if you are down in San Diego (it ain't worth driving there). Other spots will be smaller and softer.

Here are the tides

03:32AM 2.1' Low
09:40AM 5.9' High
05:04PM -0.1' Low
11:23PM 3.6' High

i had a pretty fun session in Sd today, it was absolutely beautiful out, totally clean but then the huge fog bank rolled in all of a sudden and it got a little textured.
