North Orange County
Surf Forecast Overview

Wave heights will mostly hold on Tuesday as the mix of S-SW energy (180-220) continues to pulse in some inconsistent sets and manages to mix with some small NW windswell (290-300). Look for the best surf at the well-exposed combo spots that can pull in swell from both directions.
