Playful Waves Here, Just Harder to Find

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!
