North Pacific swell generating activity is waking up while Southerly swells are still on the map at the same time. Nice time of year to be in Central California with typically the warmest weather and clean swells arriving along most all coastlines. Short range surf forecast calls for continued knee to waist in Santa Cruz with occasional larger sets at the tops spots through Wednesday. Plenty of waist to head high waves can be found at more exposed beaches of the North Coast and Central Coast for those searching for surf. A new WNW shows Thursday boosting the waves to head high in Santa Cruz and well over head North and South of town. The trend goes smaller into the weekend from there but still fun size moving water can be found.
