Waves for Wednesday – a few small ones

Wednesday will have a few rideable waves but there isn’t really enough swell to call it a surf day.

We will have a mix of SW swell (200-220), some leftover S-SSW swell (180-200), and some weak NW windswell.

Most spots will be around knee-knee high+...with a few bigger sets on the lower morning tide. The standout spots (and I use the term loosely) will have some waist high+ sets. The best shape will be as we move off the negative low tide in the morning. Look for a little bigger surf through Orange County and San Diego thanks to a little more exposure to the swell mix.

Winds look good...mostly light and variable to light offshore through the morning. NW winds around 10-12 knots will move in through the afternoon.

Like I said there will be a few rideable waves sneaking through in the morning but mostly it is going to be small and kind of gutless at the average spots. Your best bet is going to be at the better combo beach breaks, particularly spots that have some good sandbars. I think that a bigger board (or at least something that works well in small surf) will probably be the most fun.

Here are the tides...
