North Orange County
Surf Forecast Overview

Friday will see the SW swell (205-220) continue to wriggle into the exposed spots while the local windswell (290-300) tries to creep up as well. Look for the surf to be on the soft-inconsistent side for most of the beaches but the standout combo spots will see some slightly punchier and more consistent set waves.
