Surf for Monday – Some cleaner combo swell

Monday looks like a surf day.

We will have a mix of new S swell (170-180), some SW energy (190-215), and some background NW windswell.

Waves will be in the waist-chest high range at most of the exposed spots. The standout S facing breaks (mostly in Orange County) and excellent combo spots (mostly in San Diego County), will have surf in the chest-shoulder high range. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a bigger set now and then on the lower tides but I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for them either.

Winds will be fairly clean. Mostly light and variable throughout the region…with some very light southerly flow for a few of the more exposed breaks. In general I expect semi-glassy conditions through the morning. NW winds come onshore in the 10-15 knot range by the afternoon…expect the water temps to cool off a touch as these winds start to tear things up.

I think it will be fun tomorrow…nothing outstanding, just sort of playful. If you can I would try and get on it early before the tide fills in…too much water is probably going to swamp out the shape a bit, particularly at spots (like the ones in parts North OC) where the sandbars got chewed up by the bigger S swell last week. If you do have to surf later in the day…try and stick to spots that can handle the tides.
