North Orange County
Surf Forecast Overview

Smaller surf will settle in on Thanksgiving as the last bit of our WNW-NW energy backs down and the smaller S-SW background swell continues to sort of limp in. Look for clean conditions for most areas in the morning but do not expect much size or consistency as the swell fades and the tide fills in.
