Surf for Tuesday – Still a few fun ones

Tuesday looks pretty surfable…

Swellwise we will still have a few waves from a mix of overlapping local WNW-NW windswell and some new medium-period WNW swell (280-300). Overall size is going to feel a little smaller as the windswell drops off and turns a bit more northerly.

Look for most breaks with some WNW exposure to hold in the waist-chest high range on Tuesday. Better NW facing spots will be in the waist-shoulder high range while the standout breaks see some chest-head high sets. Look for biggest surf through Southern San Diego and a few parts of Ventura and the South Bay.

Winds look good on Tuesday with light and variable to light offshore flow and slowly clearing skies on tap through the morning. Mild-moderate NW winds around 10-12 knots will move in through the afternoon.

Overall we should still be able to get a few fun waves at the better exposed spots…and a few smaller peaks at most other breaks. Shape will be a bit on the soft side through the morning thanks to the 6-foot high tide that peaks right around 7:30…but if you can wait a couple of hours till midmorning the tide should back off enough to speed things up.

Here are the tides…

Is the water quality good? Seems like I'd wait a couple of days before getting in again...or could be I got sick off the swell/water last week.

I am working on the Survey tonight, and should have something to send out tomorrow.

I am very stoked on the info that everyone has sent along. I won't be giving a ton of detail spot-by-spot, but I should be able to lay out some interesting stuff. Hopefully you guys will be stoked as well.
