Tuesday’s Surf – Still small with some colder water

Tuesday will actually have a little more swell in the water but it is still not going to be a good surf day.

We are going to have a mix of small S-SW energy (180-220 from a couple of different sources) and some local WNW energy.



Most spots are going to see surf in the knee-thigh high range but inconsistent on the sets, particularly through the higher tides. The top SW facing combo breaks, mostly through San Diego County, will have some chest high+ sets...but again we can expect some inconsistency out of the bigger waves.

Winds look manageable. The eddy circulation will continue but it is forecast to remain on the light side. Expect variable southerly flow through the morning, mostly below 5 knots. Building NW winds 10-15 knots come onshore in the afternoon.

Will it be worth getting wet tomorrow? That is sort of a personal call...the surf will be small, inconsistent, and the water will be colder than it has been...but if you are jonesing you should be able to catch a few on a bigger board, and really any day surfing is much better than working. Don’t spend a lot of time driving around...if you find a workable wave get on it...there won’t really be anything better around the corner.

We do get more swell later this week...we basically can expect a slow build over the next few days and then a decent pulse of SW swell (190-210+) arriving and peaking through Friday into Saturday (and even more on tap a few days after that). So by the end of the week we should have a lot of waist-shoulder high surf for SW facing spots...and a few head high sets at the standout SW breaks. Winds look a little shaky but I think we might be able to power through a little bump for some larger surf. I will have more details as we move throughout the week.

Here are the tides for Tuesday...

12:44AM LDT 0.8 L
06:22AM LDT 3.4 H
11:58AM LDT 1.2 L
06:29PM LDT 5.4 H

Hey Adam, are we ever going to see some more board repair guides or surf spot maps?

Adam,

I remember when you used to do a report for Baja, are you going to do them anymore?

All mom-doing aside...

I have been pretty swamped with stuff over the last few months so I haven't gotten to post all of the cool stuff that I want. I do plan on working on more surf spot maps and board repair/shaping features in the future but I don't have an ETA on them.

I do plan on getting the Baja forecast back up and running again...but I didn't see a lot of traffic when I was doing it before. Again I don't have an ETA but there are a lot of new things in the works. Hopefully soon on all of this stuff.
