South San Diego Surf Report & Forecast

Surf Forecast Brief Outlook: THURSDAY: NW swell-mix continues, as SSW swell holds steady at select exposures. Most of the region is in the knee-waist-chest high zone through the morning, as best combo magnets pull in some better sets to chest/shoulder high. Summer focal points pull in some larger sets around favorable tides. WEATHER/WIND: Light/variable to light SSE/S winds early, trending S/SW through the morning. Light+ SW flow develops through the afternoon, then may lighten back up before dark. High expectations. Onshore flow develops through the morning and continues in the afternoon. 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.
