North Orange County
Surf Forecast Overview

Most areas will see a holding mix of S-SW energy along with some new long-period SW swell (180-220) and some building local NW windswell (290-300) on Wednesday. Select spots will also see peaking tropical SE swell (160-170) holding through the morning but then beginning to weaken pretty quickly by the afternoon...it will be a bit too steeply angled for most of Socal, but it will be a nice boost for the few beaches that can pull it in.
