Monday’s Surf – Clean morning conditions but fading surf.

Monday’s Surf – Clean morning conditions but fading surf.

Monday should be a fairly nice “beach day” but the swell will be on the way down and it looks like smaller waves showing for all areas. It won’t be totally flat but expect to switch up to the smaller wave gear at the average spots.

Sunday’s Surf – Cleaning up but losing more size as the windswell drops off

Sunday’s Surf – Cleaning up but losing more size as the windswell drops off

Sunday is looking surfable…not a “great” surf day…but mostly clean for the morning with some decent rideable waves at the better S facing spots and the better combo breaks.

Saturday – Not looking clean but not a complete garbage-fest either

Saturday – Not looking clean but not a complete garbage-fest either

The storm tapers off Saturday AM and while there will be some funk hanging around it looks like winds may start off light. Cross your fingers that we get a shot at at least manageable shape before the onshore pick back up.

Friday’s Slop – Looking a bit windy…

Friday’s Slop – Looking a bit windy…

Friday does not look like a surf day…the winds that drove in on Thursday night are expected to continue through Friday and even with a decent amount of combo swell…there aren’t many places that will be able to block out the sloppy conditions.

Sloppy start to the weekend but cleaner surf on tap by Sunday-Monday

Sloppy start to the weekend but cleaner surf on tap by Sunday-Monday

Crappy weather on tap as we move into Friday…but the storm action starts to break off by Saturday afternoon, and Sunday and Monday should see much better conditions. Look for a lump of stormy NW swell to blend with a decent S swell over Friday and Saturday and then smaller, but still potentially playful, as we head into early next week.

Thursday’s Surf – Storm moving in but still a chance for some surf early

Thursday’s Surf  – Storm moving in but still a chance for some surf early

We have a chilly looking spring storm moving down the West Coast that will be pushing into Socal on Thursday. Surf shape is going to be entirely dependent on where the storm is located…but at this point there may be some protected pockets still holding out through the morning.

Waves for Wednesday – Starting to look fugly but the winds are still making up their minds.

Waves for Wednesday – Starting to look fugly but the winds are still making up their minds.

The polls are still out on Wednesday being a surf day…on one hand we have building long-period S-SSW swell and an increasing blend of WNW-NW energy but on the other we have winds increasing quickly in the outer water and we might have onshore winds pushing in before we get much of a chance to ride the new swell.

Tuesday’s Surf – Sunny, mostly clean, with a small swell combo running through the morning

Tuesday’s Surf – Sunny, mostly clean, with a small swell combo running through the morning

Tuesday looks like a surf day…again nothing great…but rideable with playful sizes for most of the exposed spots and clean conditions for most areas.

Bigger, sloppy surf on tap later this week with a chance for better conditions by early next week.

Bigger, sloppy surf on tap later this week with a chance for better conditions by early next week.

This week is going to play with our minds and dish out some emotional torture…promising some solid surf as a good sized S-SSW swell moves in and a large lump of WNW-NW energy lining up for later in the week…and then trying to crush our spirits by rolling a storm over the region right as those swells peak, bringing onshore wind, small chance of rain, and heartbreak.
