Wed, July 30 - rideable
knee to chest high with occasional shoulder 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.

Patchy Fog
75
Thu, July 31 - playful
knee to chest high with occasional shoulder 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.

Weather: Low: 66 High: 75

Patchy Fog

Fri, August 1 - rideable
knee to chest high with occasional shoulder 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.

Swell/Tide/Wind Details
Weather: Low: 66 High: 75

Patchy fog before 11am. Otherwise, cloudy through mid morning, then gradual clearing, with a high near 75. Southeast wind around 5 mph becoming southwest in the morning.
