North Orange County
Surf Forecast Overview

Some more WNW-NW swell (285-300) continues to show on Friday, mixing with some smaller S-SSW leftovers (180-200). Sizes will be pretty stable compared to the previous couple of days but we can still expect periods of softer shape and gaps between the sets. Look for some funky weather to start to creep in later Friday night.
