Mon, July 28 - marginal
flat to ankle high with occasional knee high sets.
Summary:

Monday will see a slight reinforcement of SPAC swell helping to prop up the fading mix of S-SW swell (180-220) leftover from the weekend. Look for the NW windswell to stabilize, even slightly increase as winds in the outer waters start to add in more NW energy.

Tue, July 29 - marginal
ankle to knee high with occasional knee high sets.
Summary:

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.

Wed, July 30 - marginal
ankle to knee high with occasional knee high sets.
Summary:

Most areas will see a holding mix of S-SW energy along with some new long-period SW swell (180-220) and some building local NW windswell (290-300) on Wednesday. Select spots will also see peaking tropical SE swell (160-170) holding through the morning but then beginning to weaken pretty quickly by the afternoon...it will be a bit too steeply angled for most of Socal, but it will be a nice boost for the few beaches that can pull it in.

Swell/Tide/Wind Details
Weather: Low: 63 High: 83

Partly sunny, with a high near 83. West northwest wind 5 to 10 mph increasing to 10 to 15 mph in the morning. Winds could gust as high as 20 mph.

Thu, July 31 - marginal
ankle to knee high with occasional knee high sets.
Summary:

More SW swell (210-220) will help to prop up wave heights on Thursday while select SE facing beaches see the last of the tropical SE swell (160-170). Look for some NW windswell (290-300) hanging in the background at the best combo spots. Overall wave heights will be about the same but plan on the standout spots to shift around to the more SW direction.

Fri, August 1 - marginal
ankle to waist high with occasional waist high sets.
Summary:

Friday will see the SW swell (205-220) continue to wriggle into the exposed spots while the local windswell (290-300) tries to creep up as well. Look for the surf to be on the soft-inconsistent side for most of the beaches but the standout combo spots will see some slightly punchier and more consistent set waves.
