Monday’s Surf – Playful and a bit cleaner

Monday is looking like a surf day…again it won’t be stellar but there is some surf in the water and the conditions will improve as the coastal eddy that tweaked us on Sunday blows itself out.

We are going to have a mix of SW swell (190-210), medium period WNW energy (290-300), and some local NW windswell.

Most spots are going to hold in the waist-chest high range while the standout SW facing spots and the good combo breaks, mostly through San Diego and Orange County, see some inconsistent shoulder high sets.

Weather looks a bit better…it will still be a little overcast and june-gloomy in the morning but the eddy winds won’t be nearly as strong. Current forecasts are calling for light and variable winds through the morning with some moderate 10-12 knot W-WNW winds for the afternoon. Overall there may be a touch of texture at some of the more exposed beaches but if you stick to spots that have a little more wind protection, high-cliffs or kelp or something, it will be fairly clean. Check out the COAMPS for the dawn patrol tomorrow.

I think that it will be worth getting a few waves in the morning…the low tide will have a few spots sort of drained out but the better sandbars should have some playful sections, particularly the combo beach breaks. I wouldn’t spend a ton of time driving around, just because the swell isn’t all that big or consistent…but it will be worth motivating if you are in a reasonable range.

Oh on a totally random note…I got roped into watching America’s Funniest Videos with my almost 4-year old. I don’t know about the rest of you but watching that show definitely makes my 'nads hurt in empathy. Anyways...I am off to do some skateboarding down the giant ramp I made out of cardboard into my pool filled with broken bottles and gravel. (It should end well)

Sunrise is about 6:20am or so.

Here are the tides…
