Wind for Wednesday – more stupid wind

Wednesday won’t be a surf day…the onshore winds that we saw on Tuesday will continue through Wednesday as well (don’t worry things do eventually clean up on Thursday/Friday).

In the water we will have a mix of steady NW windswell (290-300), some background WNW-NW swell (285-300), and some weak SW energy.

Look for waist-chest high surf at the average exposed breaks while the better NW facing spots see some chest-head high sets. The standout NW facing breaks, mostly through Southern San Diego, see some shoulder-head high+ surf with some bigger sets mixing it up as well. Shape looks pretty poor again for most areas…but the NW winds don’t totally blow out everything…so if you are desperate you might be able to find a hidden little corner out there somewhere.

More freaking wind on tap for Wednesday…WNW-NW winds 10-20 knots for the morning…with some stronger near 25-30 knot gusts setting up by the afternoon.

Not really much in the way of change from Tuesday…there is still windswell and it is still windy…and now the water is starting to look really cold thanks to all the lovely upwelling…basically making it just that much more appealing. I will be sleeping in again tomorrow…hopefully there will be enough leftover windswell to have some fun as things clean up on Thursday.

Make sure to check out the regional forecasts for the details for each county so you can find out how windy it will be at your favorite spots.
