South San Diego Surf Report & Forecast

Surf Forecast Brief Outlook: WNW groundswell is down a bit, but gets some reinforcements, as some small SW swell blends in. The early morning high tide keeps most of the region sluggish early. Around the more favorable tides look for chest-shoulder-head high waves for better winter exposures, as top winter/combo breaks are up to a couple feet overhead at times. Light offshore flow through the morning, with winds trending light Southerly midday. A light to moderate sea-breeze develops in the afternoon.
