waist to head high with occasional head high sets.
Summary:

Southern Hemi swells (180-220) will continue to linger-hold as we move into Friday. Look for some increasing but still relatively small WNW-NW energy (285-300) to hang in the background. S facing spots will continue to see the bigger sizes while the combo spots continue to have rideable shape-size as well.

Sat, April 19 - rideable
chest to head high with occasional head high sets.
Summary:

New S swell (180-190) builds in on Saturday while mixing with some new WNW-NW energy, mostly local windswell (285-300), and a touch of modest NW background swell. Looks like winds will be a little shifty in the morning, enough to add some texture to the more exposed spots.

Swell/Tide/Wind Details
Weather: Low: 54 High: 65

Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 65. Light and variable wind becoming west 5 to 10 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 20 mph.

Summary:

S swell continues to build in on Sunday (180-190) while mixing with some smaller background S-SW energy and WNW-NW swell (285-300) helping to flesh out the gaps in the bigger S swell.

Mon, April 21 - playful
chest to head high with occasional overhead sets.
Summary:

A large, but very steep lump of new NW swell (290-320) will peak through the day on Monday. Most of this energy will slip past the average Socal breaks, but some will bend in around the corner and mix with our steady S-SW swells (180-210). Expect combo spots to have more consistency and size than other areas...but good S facing spots will be fun as well.

Decreasing Clouds
Tue, April 22 - rideable
waist to head high with occasional head high sets.
Summary:

The blend of overlapping S-SW energy (180-210) and new NW swell (290-300) will continue on Tuesday. In fact the steeper NW energy will slowly shift to more of a windswell-type swell and begin to slip a little more to the WNW, which will allow some extra swell to make it into Socal. Look for sizes to hold, though the local winds may get a little funky.
