North Orange County
Surf Forecast Overview

Thursday will see the mix of WNW-NW energy (290-300) back down a bit further while being replaced by smaller and softer NW windswell (290-300). There will be some small S-SW background energy (180-220) rounding out the swell mix but expect it to only produce some minor lines for the well exposed spots.
