North Orange County
Surf Forecast Overview

Saturday will see a mix of leftover S-SSW energy (180-200), some chunky local NW windswell (290-300) and some background S-SW energy still limping in from other SPAC storms. Overall the size will continue to back down from the work week but the more exposed areas will still see some rideable waves.
