South San Diego Surf Report & Forecast

Surf Forecast Brief Outlook: Primary WNW swell holds, while a minor SSW swell mixes in. Better exposures to the WNW energy will offer surf mainly within the waist-head high zone, while winter standouts produce occasional slightly overhead sets (most prominent around the best tides). Light to moderate offshore ENE'erly wind in the morning. Then a light to moderate onshore westerly seabreeze develops in the afternoon. Mostly clear/sunny skies.
