Below are the best weather maps for local stand up paddleboarding, kiteboarding, & surfing. The NOAA California buoys are about 20-40 miles offsore but typically provide a good estimate for wind. Hot weather can tend to block wind off the coast. Look for coastal temperatures below 70 for the best wind.
