The Dana Point detailed wave forecast as of Monday night shows a steady pulse of long-period South-S

The Dana Point detailed wave forecast as of Monday night shows a steady pulse of long-period South-Southwest (198°) energy through the next 7 days (pink line above). Look for wave heights to slowly increase beginning Wednesday into Saturday, topping out just above 3 feet.

Looking into next week, the forecast currently shows long-period forerunners from the South (2 feet at 17 seconds, 176°) arriving next Tuesday. We should have a better idea of what that swell will do in a few days, but in the meantime, enjoy the head-high surf that will be on tap through the weekend.
