Waves for Wednesday – Go away wind

Wednesday will be surfable but like the last few days the eddy will continue to send in some bump.

We will have a mix of overlapping SW swell (180-220) and some NW windswell pushing in from the outer waters.

Most spots will have surf in the waist high range with some inconsistent waist high+ sets. The standout SW facing spots and the better combo spots in San Diego and South OC will have chest-shoulder high sets pushing through on the lower tides.

The eddy circulation is forecast to continue tomorrow...it won’t be horrible but the S winds will be present in the morning. Right now it looks like light S-SE winds around 5-8 knots...so if you are looking for cleaner surf you should plan on checking the spots that have some protection from the S winds. W winds around 10-12 knot build in through the afternoon.

Not many changes compared to the last few days...I think that the eddy will actually be a touch lighter than we have been seeing...but it still won’t glassy except in a few areas. Smaller wave gear will probably be more fun.

Here are the tides...
