Waking up with the waves on Monday, I’m Surf Junkie Jeff with your Manhattan Beach Patch surf report. Well, the latest round of energy has backed down quite a bit, but you can still find a few playful size waves out there. You can definitely break out just about any board today!
The conditions are looking pretty clean early on, with some spots seeing a little texture on the surface. We have a mix of mainly continued fading west northwest swell and some minimal southerly energy in the background.
That recipe is offering some crumbly sectiony lines, with a few fast corners to be had. Most Manhattan Beach spots are running about knee to waist high plus, with the focal points pulling some stomach high plus sets.
At 7:27 this morning the tide drained out to a negative 0.4 low, which will have many spots lacking water and pretty inconsistent early to mid-morning. The tide then pushes back up to a 3.9 high at 2:26 this afternoon, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
If you’re going to get wet, and if it has been a while since you’ve paddled, it’s still fairly cold, so throw on at least a 3/2 fullsuit or a 4/3 and possibly the booties, with it averaging between 56 and 58 degrees. Good luck out there!
