North Orange County
Surf Forecast Overview

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.
