*Updated surfing forecast for Huntington Beach*


Forecast Overview

Friday is going to be another smaller day.  In the afternoon though new S (180-190) swell starts to slowly build, adding to leftover background energy in the water and mixing with a slight increase in windswell from the outer waters.  Shouldn’t mean any drastic changes, but could mean a few more ridable size waves by the end of the day.

The Swell

For the most part Friday is going to be pretty eventless.  The blend of leftover S-SSW (180-205) and weak WNW-NW windswell/swell start the day off with nearly flat surf for a lot of areas.  Standouts might be able to squeeze out a few weak ridable waves… I wouldn’t put too much effort into it though.  As I mentioned in the afternoon, we should start seeing a little more long-period energy coming up from the S-SSW (180-195).  Swell heights are still supposed to be under 2-feet, even in the evening though and at most there could be a couple inconsistent set waves at better southerly exposures through the evening.  There will also be a mix of windswell coming from the outer waters.  It doesn’t look particularly strong, but does suggest that there will probably be a bit of mixed energy at better W-NW exposures that could be ridable in the late afternoon/evening.

The Surf

Friday basically looks the same as Thursday with standouts running knee to waist high, most places somewhere in the ankle to knee high+ range.  The added energy in the afternoon and evening could end up resulting in a few breaks seeing occassional waist high+-chest high set waves.  Winds are supposed to be W-SW through the day, adding some light texture in the morning.  A little more of a breeze in the afternoon will add some more bump to the surface, and with the possibility for extra windswell it could be a little funkier at combo breaks and W-NW exposures later in the day.

The Weather

Low pressure moving down towards Baja could generate some light precipitation early in the morning-midmorning, focused mainly around Orange County and San Diego.  Skies should at least partly clear through the day.  Light onshore winds in the morning (mostly under 5 mph) will increase in the afternoon out of the W-NW blowing 10-15+ mph along the exposed coast.

The Skinny

Not a great surf day when it comes down to it.  Too small in the morning, and too windy in the afternoon/evening.  Best bet is to wait a couple days until better southern hemi swell fills in, and there’s a bit more opportunity to score.  If you can’t wait that long, make sure you bring something that can float you through the weak, slop and chop.
