Small Waves for Wednesday – Yep that pretty much sums it up

Wednesday won’t be much of a surf day.

We will continue to see a weak mix of small SW swell (200-220) and minor WNW windswell.

Wave heights are going to be in the ankle-knee high range at most of the average S facing spots. The standout S-SW facing breaks, mostly through South Orange County and North San Diego, will be more consistently in the knee-waist high range.

Winds look ok…mostly light and variable in the morning with just a couple of pockets of texture here and there. WNW winds around 10-12 knots will move through in the afternoon.

With the meager swell in the water there won’t be much surfing going on tomorrow. Sitting and waiting for knee high sets, yes…actual wave riding, no. Conditions will be good and the tide is improving…there just isn’t enough energy in the water. If you have to surf, (and really you should save up your surf-time/hall-pass for next week), but if you have to go out, then bring your big board and a lot of patience…you’ll have more fun.

Here are the tides

03:19AM LDT -1.2 L
09:32AM LDT 4.6 H
02:57PM LDT 1.2 L
08:57PM LDT 6.7 H
