Patchy Fog

Wed, July 23 - bad
knee to waist high with occasional waist high sets.
Summary:

Short-period WNW-NW windswell (285-300...with most of the energy hitting spots exposed to the pure 295-300 degree swell direction) will be slowly building throughout the day. Do not expect to see much quality surf from this new energy but it could at least keep things rideable at the top breaks.

Swell/Tide/Wind Details
Weather: Low: 74 --

Patchy fog after 11pm. Otherwise, mostly clear early, then becoming mostly cloudy, with a low around 65. West wind 5 to 15 mph.

Thu, July 24 - marginal
knee to waist high with occasional chest high sets.
Summary:

More windswell (285-300) piles in on Thursday, adding in some slightly longer swell periods and a touch more westerly direction in the process. We will also see some new S-SSW energy (180-200) that will creep up in the background, but do not expect it to make much of a difference, even at the top combo spots.

Weather: Low: 66 High: 74

Fri, July 25 - rideable
knee to waist high with occasional chest high sets.
Summary:

Increasing S swell (175-185) will be on the rise while the WNW-NW windswell holds into Friday morning. The smaller SSW swell will linger in the background but will not add much to the swell mix since it is mostly on the way out. Winds will still be strong along the central coast but local morning winds look manageable.

Swell/Tide/Wind Details
Weather: Low: 66 High: 76

Cloudy through mid morning, then gradual clearing, with a high near 76. Light southwest wind increasing to 5 to 10 mph in the afternoon.
