Good Tuesday morning surfers, I'm Surf Junkie Jeff with your Los Alamitos-Seal Beach Patch surf report. Well, it looks like it's backing down a bit, but you can still pick off plenty of playful waves in this neck of the woods.
The conditions are starting off nice and clean early on, with a mixed bag of energy out there. We're seeing some minor fading west northwest swell, some dropping leftover southerly windswell and very minor south southwest energy in the water.
That's offering some fast sectiony lines, with lots of fun corners. Most Seal Beach breaks are running about knee to stomach high, with the focal points pulling some chest high plus sets.
At 6:00 this morning the tide drained out to a negative 0.7 low which is going to have many spots really in need of water early on. The tide then pushes back up to a 4.1 high at 12:11 this afternoon. Your best bet is probably sometime mid-morning!
If you're going to get wet, throw on at least a 3/2 fullsuit or better yet a 4/3 and possibly the booties, with the water temperature hanging between 56 and 57 degrees. See ya in the water!
FYI: Don't forget the County Health Department urges surfers and swimmers to stay out of the ocean for at least 72 hours after a rain due to urban runoff, especially near storm drains, river mouths and harbor entrances.
