*Updated surfing forecast for Huntington Beach*

Holding mix of overlapping S-SSW swells keeps things playful through midweek

Forecast Overview

Wednesday will be a pretty decent surf day. The mix of S-SSW swells will continue to push in some fun, but occasionally inconsistent waves while local winds stay light/variable to light offshore for the morning. Even the tides, which had been pretty boggy in the morning, will speed up a bit as the peak of the high tide pushes closer to lunchtime.

The Swell

Overlapping S-SSW energy (180-205) will hold through the day on Wednesday. The swell from the weekend is still trailing off, but before it can drop too far a new shot of reinforcing South Pacific swell arrives and helps prop up our slowly fading wave heights. Mix of WNW-NW windswell (285-300) and some very minor tropical SSE-S swell will linger in the background, but won’t be able to generate much surf on their own.

The Surf

The surf settles into a more typical summer/early fall type rhythm on Wednesday. The average S-SSW facing spots will have around the knee-waist high range with some chest high sets mixing in on the morning tide push. The standout S-SSW facing spots and excellent combo breaks will have surf in the knee-chest high range with some shoulder high, even shoulder high+ sets hitting on the better parts of the tide swing. Expect the building tide and increasing afternoon onshore winds to hurt shape and size as we move into the second half of the day.

The Weather

We will have a mix of sunny skies and areas of patchy fog on tap for the morning…most areas will be nice and clean with fairly warm beach temps, however there is a chance for some slight texture forming up around the edges of any fog pockets that do manage to form. Overall morning winds will stay below 1-3 knots. Look for building W-WSW winds in the 10-12 knot range as we move into the afternoon.

The Skinny

Wednesday will be another fairly surfable day…though the best shape and consistency will show in the early morning before the tide has a chance to swamp things out. Look for the best surf, in terms of size, shape, and consistency at the SSW facing points and reefs. The beach breaks will be workable, particularly the ones that can pull in some of the background windswell, but they won’t line up quite as well as the points/reefs will. Again I would try and surf in the early morning…we have a 0.3’ low tide that hits around 4:30am, which rises to a nearly 6’ high tide around 10:40am…the sweet spot will be somewhere inbetween those two extremes and will most likely depend on the break you are surfing (and how well it deals with the tides). Quick-Reminder: The Hurley Trestles contest is on down at Lowers…(and you will get a lot of overlap with the other spots in the region)…so you may want to hunt around for a different break if that is your usual go-to spot
