Tuesday’s Surf – More summer fun

Tuesday is going to be a surf day.

The leftovers from the weekend will still be dropping on Tuesday but the surf isn’t going to fade too far thanks to a new building SW swell (190-210). This new SW’er will be filling in through the morning, peaking later in the day, and then holding into Wednesday. There will also be a bit of WNW windswell (and some weak, longer-period, WNW energy) holding in the background.

Our surf is going to be a more manageable waist-chest high at the average spots, as well as a few bigger chest-shoulder high sets on the more favorable tides. The standout SW facing breaks, and good combo spots, will be in the chest-shoulder high range with a few inconsistent head high faces sneaking through.

Winds are going to be pretty decent on Tuesday. Look for light and variable to slightly southerly morning winds, with the cleanest conditions at spots with high-cliffs and kelp. A few of the really exposed beaches may have a bit of light texture. Afternoon winds return out of the WNW around 10-15 knots.

Now that the southern hemi swell isn’t steamrolling all of the combo windswell it looks like shape is starting to improve at the beach breaks. Points and reefs will likely continue to be the call from an overall shape standpoint but the beach breaks with exposure to both swells in the mix will be a good second choice. With the warm water, light winds, and still fun swell there isn’t a lot of reason no to get in the water tomorrow.

Here are the tides…

newport this .... newport that.
come on! the whole freakin coast was pumpin and all we see and hear about is newport. it seems all most people in the surf industry care about is newport. just venting. just sucks when your home break is the most awesome its been in ages of summer surf, and all that is on the internet is newport. it such conditions as we had, it's not even a pretty wave with doable sections . it's a crap wave, but just because it pitches huge and some psycho sups did it, it gets all the coverage. sad. so sad.

its all about the local spots bro, that no one will ever find out about, so just be happy that your local spots are not on the internet as well. So if I were you I would just let every one talk about and surf newport so they dont start talking about other amzing spots that were breaking over the weekend. Because how wrong would that be if the internet starting talking about local spots and giving out there locations, hah.

I kinda agree with the guy, though the others have good points about keeping our spots local and "hidden" from the media. but, seriously, all we ever hear about on surfline or in the mags is newport. it does get old after a while.
