Thursday’s Surf – More of the small stuff

Thursday will be another weak/small surf day.

There will be a touch more WNW swell in the water...but overcoming the high tide is going to pose some real problems throughout most of the day.

On average we are going to see knee high surf for most of the exposed areas. The standout spots will have a few bigger waves...right in the waist high range with a few chest high sets at the top NW facing spots. Overall it is going to be pretty soft and inconsistent throughout the day.

The weather will be nice...winds will be light and offshore through the morning and mostly variable through the afternoon. Sunny skies for most areas as well. Good beach weather...just no real swell to go with it.

Plan on using your small wave gear...and keeping a really open mind...basically it will be good for washing off the dirt (hahaha...you hippies) and that is about it.

Here are the tides...

12:13AM LST 4.6 H
06:07AM LST 1.5 L
11:42AM LST 4.4 H
06:22PM LST 0.3 L

As for the weekend forecast...it is still looking about the same as the post I threw up yesterday. I still think that the swell models are overcalling this swell...the satellites are showing smaller swell heights than WavewatchIII (the swell model) is calling for, which isn't good. That being said there will be plenty of waves, especially compared to the current flatness...just nothing really huge.

Yes, yes, stay right here in Surf City. Do not plan on traveling either north/south to catch some real winter waves.

Btw, on a 280/290, Bolsa will be the same size as the Cliffs, while the Pier could be knee high. Island blocking and all that.

Here's a tip I don't mind giving out since I'll be out of town: check the inlet.

I got a tip: everyone stay north of the San Diego County line.

Ventura and SD will be, without a doubt, the best place on the surf planet to be this weekend. DO NOT miss it in these locations.

If you want a courage session this weekend, test your balls at Imperial Beach this weekend. You ain't seen nothing till you try IB on a clean swell; and it will be clean because of the angle of the swell pushing all the Mexican turds for south. It's gonna be glorious!

I hear IB gets huge. Never been there. Someday I'll check it out.
