Tuesday's Surf - Fun in the right spots

Tuesday looks a bit more surfable than Monday...I would even venture to call it a surf day since conditions are going to cooperate a little more.

I was probably a little hard on Monday's surf in yesterday's forecast...I was checking the surf at lunch today and saw a few fun peaks spread around the beach breaks. It wasn't firing but it was a bit better than I was expecting by that time of the day. I spent a few extra minutes going "where is my freaking wind dammit!?!".

Anyway Tuesday the swell mix will continue...the SW'er (200-220) will be a little more southerly and the local windswell will be a touch bigger.

Most spots will continue to see surf in the waist high range. Better exposed breaks will be in the waist-chest high range while the top breaks, mostly in San Diego and South OC, see some chest-shoulder high sets on the lower tides.
Winds look nice and light through the morning...light and variable for most spots with a couple of pockets of texture at the more open beaches. NW winds come onshore around 10 knots for the afternoon.

It won't be worth driving around a ton tomorrow...I would probably try and find waves close to home since there isn't a ton of size hitting anywhere. The combo spots will probably be the most fun...nice little crossed up peaks if you can pull in the swell mix. The points/reefs with SW exposure will be fun as well but make be a bit less consistent.

Here are the tides for Tuesday

05:23AM 3.8' High
09:38AM 3.2' Low
03:19PM 4.9' High
11:08PM 0.1' Low
