Tuesday’s Surf – midweek mushburgers

Tuesday will be surfable but not really a surf day.

Like the last couple of days the surf will be on the small/playful side but the hot weather and the warmer water temps will be good arguments for getting in the water anyways.

Swellwise we are going to see a mix of mostly WNW windswell, some leftover S-SW energy, a new but inconsistent SW swell (200-220), and a touch of tropical energy from Carlos. It sounds like a lot going on but in reality it is sort of soft mix of weak swells that won’t add up to much. The CDIP paints a pretty good picture of what we are going to see tomorrow.

Wave heights are going to average around knee-waist high and be semi-soft, mushy, windswell peaks at most areas. A few of the better S-SW facing spots, mostly in Orange County and parts of San Diego, will get some of the increasing S-SW swells and will be more consistently in the waist-chest high range. The top spots will have some inconsistent shoulder high sets.

Winds look ok tomorrow as well. It will be light and variable through the morning with a few pockets of light onshore texture for the OC/SD areas. WNW winds 10-14 knots fill in through the afternoon. Weather will continue to be warm with clear skies for most of the day.

I think that the best call will be the combo beach breaks tomorrow...there isn’t much energy behind these swells but if you luck into a decent sandbar you might get a couple of faster sections. I would probably stick with the smaller/slower wave gear to get more out of the swell. Also water temps are pretty nice right least through the OC/SD areas...I trunked it for a few mid-morning waves at the local beach break. You might still want at least a jacket...probably more if you are further north.

Here are the tides...
