North Orange County
Surf Forecast Overview

Tropical S swell (180-190) continues to build on Friday, with consistent surf already showing in the morning and bigger waves hitting the good tropical S facing breaks by the afternoon. We will also have some S and SW swell (180-220) moving in from the Southern Hemi and NW windswell (290-300) from our local waters. Expect the biggest waves at beaches with great S exposure and even larger waves at spots that can focus medium-period tropical energy.
