Waves for Wednesday – Creeping up

Wednesday will have a little more size and it may start to be on the verge of being a surf day at the well exposed spots.

We are going to see our SSW swell (190-210) come up a touch more on Wednesday. NW windswell will also be on the rise thanks to increasing winds in our outer waters. It still won’t be big or even all that good but even a little more size is going to make it more rideable. Check out the CDIPper from this afternoon...

The average SW exposed breaks are going to have surf in the knee-waist high range with some chest high sets. The standout SW facing breaks, and the good combo breaks, will have waist-chest high surf with a few sets bordering on chest-shoulder high on the lower tides.

Winds will be ok. Sort of light and variable to lightly onshore in the morning with increasing WNW flow around 10-14 knots through the afternoon.

I took a couple of passes along North OC today and I saw a little bit of this swell blipping in. It wasn’t very good looking, but it was definitely showing a little more energy than the last couple of days.

Unfortunately for our surf on Wednesday it looks like the SW’er will be doing most of the work, which means that a lot of the “sets” (and I use the term loosely)will be wally at most of the exposed beach breaks. I expect that the points and reefs are going to have the best shape, followed by piers/jetties/awesome –sandbars. The biggest waves will be through San Diego and South Orange County...but there will be a few lines spread out through the other regions as well. Plan on bringing your small wave boards...there still won’t be much oomph on the sets.
