The Antarctic swell has hit the California Coast, and shredders are out in full force. Reports confirm that the past few days have been nothing short of “epic” from So Cal to many parts of Nor Cal, and classic spots like Santa Cruz has been firing on all cylinders since Thursday.
Even though these photos were taken Saturday afternoon, September 3rd, at a mid-to-high tide close to 2ft, the waves are plentiful, and people are getting after it. The SSW swell is forecasted to ease slightly over the next two days, although the forecast continues to predict set waves should remain 1-2 feet overhead through Monday. You won’t be out there alone if you hit up the Cruz,
but it’s worth the wait. Sewers, 1st, 2nd, 38th, Drainpipe, Pervs, the Hook, Sharks, Private’s, Trees-they’re all working on the east side of town, even with an afternoon high tide. Word from the west side of Santa Cruz reports the same-everything is working, and the waves are super fun.
