Surf for Tuesday – Clean with a few fun ones

Tuesday looks sooooo much more surfable than Monday. I would even venture to say that it is going to be a surf day at the better NW facing spots.

We are going to have a mix of WNW swell (some of which will be leftover from the weekend as well as a new pulse of energy from (290-300) and local windswell) that filled in on Monday and will be slowly fading out on Tuesday.

Wave heights for most average W-NW facing spots will be in the chest-shoulder high range on the lower tides. The top NW facing spots, mostly through San Diego, will have some shoulder-head high waves on the better sets, tides permitting of course.

Weather looks much better with light and variable to light offshore winds in the morning and only moderate NW winds 10-12 knots by the afternoon. Check the COAMPS for tomorrow morning...I like seeing winds going those directions on forecast charts.

Like I said above...I think we are going to see a few fun waves tomorrow. It won’t be great, but anything is better than the blown out mess that we saw on Monday. I would plan on sticking with those top NW facing spots if you are looking for consistent size...but there should be some rideable waves at most of the W-WNW facing spots as well. I don’t think that it will be worth driving cross county lines...or even that far for that matter...but it will be worth driving a little further for a NW facing spot tomorrow. The tides are going to be an issue again...try and plan around the high-tide peak if you can.
