Looks as though swell pulsed up overnight and this morning was coming from dead south at a couple of metres and 8-10 seconds apart. Wind was westerly under sunny skies but with an air temp of around 10C. Water is still on 19C though. Best shot will be the south magnets we all know and love. Next tide is a low at noon. Swell is set to fade across the day says the Bureau, but there should be stuff in the waist to maybe chest at standouts.
Tomorrow looks interesting according to the Bureau: 3-5 metres of south plus stiff SW wind!
It’s the weekend in SoCal too and we’re seeing a slight uptick locally. I grabbed a few snaps (see below) coming back from visiting a mate in Ventura. Clean, glassy, knee to waist plus depending on where you were. I didn’t have a board though. Making a plan for a more ambitious wave hunt day after tomorrow…
