North Orange County
Surf Forecast Overview

We will see a mix of SW swell (200-220), NW windswell (290-300) and short-period W-WSW tropical leftovers (250-260) that hang in the background. Plan on the inconsistent SW swell and the tropical leftovers to do much of the work, however the NW windswell may add a little more workable shape to the combo spots.
