Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, April 12 at 8:30 a.m. 

Surf at The Washout this morning is in the thigh-to-waist high range and looks fun for the high volume board.

Winds are north-west, straight off-shore, and surf zone is nice and clean. Waves are a bit weak at the higher tide.  

Look for winds to rotate westerly at 10 to 15 this afternoon, and we can expect fading surf later today with side-shore conditions by afternoon.  

We have a high tide at 9 a.m., and low tide will be at 2:54 p.m. The next high tide at 9:11 p.m.

Virtual buoy readings are showing 2.5 ft. at 6 seconds in a short-period south/south-west wind swell.   

Surf is ridable on the high-volume equipment this morning. It’s not great, but it is rideable and clean. Surf looks small Tuesday and Wednesday, but could pick up some in another south wind swell as a cold front approaches and then stalls off-shore. Hopefully a more meaningful low will pop off of this stalled frontal boundary for Friday and into the weekend, but nothing is certain at the moment.  

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “Dry high pressure will prevail into mid week. A cold front will advance through the region Wednesday night or Thursday then should stall south of the area by late week. This weekend into early next week, expect a persistent chance for showers as our area resides between high pressure to the northwest and areas of low pressure along the stationary front to our south.”

It is nice out this morning. Lots of sunshine and some clouds 64*. Look for a high of 79* with perfect beach weather on tap for today.

Water temperature is around 66*. It should be going up over the next week.

Sunrise is at 6:51 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:47 p.m.

Good morning, this is Brad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, April 11 at 8:30 a.m. 

Surf at The Washout this morning is firing in the stomach to chest high range, with occasional shoulder high sets, possibly bigger.

Winds are west, south-west at 9  knots, and surf zone is semi-clean and slightly mushed out from this mornings high. Waves are lining up perfect for maneuvers, with a solid ride if you catch it at the right spot.

Look for winds to alter more south-westerly this afternoon at 10+ knots.  Surf gets pretty choppy this afternoon, but will be fun all day.

Tide is going out. We have a low tide at 2:19 p.m., and a high tide will be at 8:42 p.m.

Virtual buoy readings are showing 1.4 ft. at 10 seconds in a longer period east, north-east ground swell.  

Waves are looking great today. Look for waves to maintain their size throughout the day, before an expected drop in size tomorrow. Winds go west to start the work week as high pressure sets up again, and surf should drop off Monday. Surf still looks bleak for the upcoming work week, but try to get on the swell today to compensate for any future dry spells.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “A weak cold front will move through tonight. Dry high pressure will then settle over the area until another cold front likely impacts the area mid week. More unsettled weather could return next weekend.”

It is nice out this morning. Lots of sunshine and some clouds 64*. Look for a high of 71* with increasing cloudiness this afternoon.    

Water temperature is around 65*. It should be going up this week.

Sunrise is at 6:54 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:47 p.m.

Good morning, this is Brad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, April 10 at 9:30 a.m. 

Surf at The Washout this morning is knee high, with occasional waist high sets at best.    

Winds are south, south-east at 5 to 10 knots, and surf zone is semi-clean and small. Waves are weak.

Look for winds to rotate more southerly this afternoon at 10+ knots. Small surf gets pretty choppy this afternoon.     

Tide is going out. We have a low tide at 1:42 p.m., and a high tide will be at 8:05 p.m.

Virtual buoy readings are showing 2.3 ft. at 4 seconds in a short-period south wind swell.  

Waves are looking small today. Look for drifty, choppy south/south-west wind swell to increase on the incoming tide, as a cold front approaches and brings increasing on-shore flow ahead of the front. Wind swell and unsettled weather builds on Sunday in more choppy south/south-west wind swell.  So there should be some wind swell to ride this weekend, just not ideal conditions. Winds go west to start the work week as high pressure sets up again, and surf should drop off Monday.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “Unsettled weather is expected across the region until a cold front moves through Sunday night. High pressure will then persist before more unsettled weather likely returns mid next week and possibly again late in the week.”

It is nice out this morning. Lots of sunshine and some clouds 71*. Look for a high of 74* with increasing cloudiness this afternoon.
