Southern California Surf 4cast Updated on December 2nd – 2021

Friday Surf Forecast 

We will see a little increase in surf with waist to chest high sets for the top West facing breaks from a familiar 295-300 degrees and medium, 13-14 second intervals. Another shockingly high AM tide will definitely put the skids on for the morning session.

The conditions look pretty damn good once again with light 1-3 MPH breezes until noon and feeble 5-7 MPH winds into the afternoon. The air temp dips to 63 degrees. 

Saturday Surf Forecast 

That swell will hang in there for another day from that same  295-300 degree angle with 12-13 second intervals. The tide will be problematic for the dawn patrol but recede quickly later in the morning.

Brutal high tides will continue to haunt the morning sessions! – Sat 08:18 AM 7.20′ High

The conditions look stellar again with light 2-4 MPH breezes until noon and 5-7 MPH winds in the afternoon. The air temp bumps up to 66 degrees.

Sunday Surf Forecast 

That swell will be on its way out with waist high waves from the same angle and short 11 second intervals. That, coupled with yet another bombing high tide will squash the morning session but the tide will drain out with urgency through the morning.

The conditions look excellent with light 1-5 MPH breezes all day long. The air temp jumps up to 77 degrees.

Monday Surf Forecast 

is looking pretty anemic with knee to waist high surf and the impending doom of another fat tide just before 10:00 AM. Go super early or late if you want to find any success and bring a voluminous amount of foam.

The conditions look fair once again with light 1-3 MPH breezes until noon and 5-7 MPH winds into the afternoon. The air temp remains in the steamy zone clocking it at 79 degrees. 

Tuesday Surf Forecast 

It looks like our run of stellar winds will come to a grinding halt. It doesn’t look terrible, just a bit iffy. The good news is that some steeply angled NW wind swell will kick up waves in the chest to head high zone, (for the better West facing breaks), from a steep 305-310 degrees and 11-12 second intervals

• Decent tide push through the morning

About the Swell Magnet Forecast

One of the most exciting–and yet most challenging–aspects of surfing is the sheer variety of waves and weather conditions that affect the entire surfing experience.
