Memorial Day Surf – Fun, soft, and slowly fading

Monday will be a surf day…nothing great overall but fun when the sets come through.

We are going to have a mix of fading S-SSW swell (180-200) and some background WNW/SW energy.

Most spots will be in the knee-waist high range with some inconsistent chest high sets at spots with a little more exposure to the S swell. The Standout S facing spots, mostly through Orange County and Northern San Diego, will have surf in the waist-chest high range fairly consistently…but with some shoulder high sets mixing in at times.

Winds look good, they will be very similar to what we have seen over the last few days. Overcast, grey skies and light/variable winds through the morning. Skies clear out and W winds build onshore around 10-12 knots by the afternoon.

Your best bet is just hunting around your local spots…it is a holiday and most of the top breaks are going to be weekend-crowded…so with the crowd and the soft/inconsistent swell mix we have out there it won’t be worth driving around a ton. Personally I am going to just stick close to home and hunt out a private little sandbar somewhere…and then fire up the bbq (and the coors light) in the afternoon as the sunshine and the wind picks up.

Have a good one…here are the tides!
