North San Diego Surf Report & Forecast

Surf Forecast Brief Outlook: THURSDAY: Holding SSW swell blends with continued NW swell-mix for some crossed up peaks at combo exposures. In the morning look for waist-chest high surf to prevail at better exposed breaks, as standout summer/combo magnets are in the shoulder high+ range on the best peaks/sets. Southern Hemi focal points offer some larger sets. WEATHER/WIND: Light/variable to locally light SE winds early, trending onshore S/SW through the morning. Light SW flow develops through the afternoon, and may lighten back up late. Onshore flow develops through the early afternoon, though is likely manageable. Fun-size run of SSW/S swells and NW swell-mix due in through the end of the week/weekend. Conditions improve through the weekend. Check out the Premium Forecast for all the details.
