Surf for Monday – Small surf with a touch of eddy

Monday is not looking like much of a surf day.

There is not much swell in the water and we are transitioning to spring weather…the NPAC high is building and the backside of the high-pressure is sending NW winds down the coast that are starting to spin up our coastal eddy.

Swellwise we just have a touch of NW windswell and a bit of tiny Southern Hemi energy. Most spots will continue to hold around knee high with some rare knee high+ sets. Standouts will be more consistently in the knee-waist high range.

Winds will be fairly light in the morning with WNW flow pushing onshore up in Ventura and Santa Barbara…and light S winds pushing through San Diego and Orange County. LA looks like it will be somewhere in between…not clean or anything just sort of swirling variable winds. Expect NW winds around 10-15 knots by the afternoon for all areas.

I would probably plan on using Monday as a “get stuff done” sort of day…there will be some better S-SSW swells heading our way for later in the week (and through next weekend…basically we see back to back to back swells from the 11- 16th of March…nothing huge but still playfully sized)…we need to save all the brownie points that we can so that we can grab a few extra hours of surf time when they show.

Oh yeah…I just have to say that I did the math and

1 Sinus infection + 1 ear infection + (4 cases of flu) = major suckiness

Glad it is over…
