Summary:

Tuesday will start off small, again seeing mostly leftover S-SW energy and some local WNW-NW windswell. Neither swell is looking like it will make much of a change through the first part of the day...though the windswell may begin to increase as we move into the late afternoon.

Wed, July 23 - bad
ankle to waist high with occasional waist high sets.
Summary:

Short-period WNW-NW windswell (285-300...with most of the energy hitting spots exposed to the pure 295-300 degree swell direction) will be slowly building throughout the day. Do not expect to see much quality surf from this new energy but it could at least keep things rideable at the top breaks.

Weather: Low: 61 High: 83

Sunny, with a high near 83. Light and variable wind becoming west southwest 5 to 10 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 15 mph.

Thu, July 24 - marginal
knee to waist high with occasional waist high sets.
Summary:

More windswell (285-300) piles in on Thursday, adding in some slightly longer swell periods and a touch more westerly direction in the process. We will also see some new S-SSW energy (180-200) that will creep up in the background, but do not expect it to make much of a difference, even at the top combo spots.

Swell/Tide/Wind Details
Weather: Low: 61 High: 83

Sunny, with a high near 83. North northeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming southwest in the morning. Winds could gust as high as 15 mph.

Fri, July 25 - rideable
knee to waist high with occasional chest high sets.
Summary:

Increasing S swell (175-185) will be on the rise while the WNW-NW windswell holds into Friday morning. The smaller SSW swell will linger in the background but will not add much to the swell mix since it is mostly on the way out. Winds will still be strong along the central coast but local morning winds look manageable.

Summary:

Clean conditions and still slowly building S swell (175-190) will push into the exposed areas on Saturday. Some new SW energy will move into the background while local NW windswell continues to linger at a few of the better combo beaches.
