South San Diego Surf Report & Forecast

Surf Forecast Brief Outlook: TUESDAY: New WNW groundswell fills in further and tops out, while secondary NW windswell and minimal SSW swell mix in. Expect chest-head high to overhead surf at the better West-NW exposures, with select winter magnets producing occasional sets up to a few feet overhead+ during the more favorable tide windows. WEATHER/WIND: Calm to light/variable wind in the morning, along with a marine layer and patchy fog in some areas. Then a moderate onshore WNW seabreeze will gradually develop in the afternoon, with skies becoming mostly clear/sunny.
