SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED on December 1st – 2020
____________________________________________________________________________________________________




____________________________________________________________________________________________________

For Wednesday morning things look decent for us with waist to chest high surf for the better West facing breaks. The angle will remain a steep 310-315 degree angle, so most of the swell will continue to pass right on by, but tide permitting, the top spots should reel in some fun sized sets.

* There’s a subtle tide push for the dawn patrol, then the tub fills up at 9:18 AM.

For Thursday morning our collective fortunes will start to change as a bigger swell weaves its way into So Cal throughout the day. From what I can tell the better West facing breaks will start off on the small side, but the energy should start showing up between 10:00 AM and noon and continue to build into the evening. The angle looks fairly accommodating, rolling in from 295-305 degrees with 20+ second intervals. Basically, we’ll start off waist high at dawn, with bigger scout sets showing mid-morning, and from there it should just start pumping in the late afternoon.

* Once again, the tide will remain a factor – Thu 09:53 AM 5.76 feet High Tide

The conditions look fantastic, with what looks to “real deal”, blustery Santa Ana winds all day. See wind projections below! The air temp dips to 70 degrees.

For Friday morning we should be seeing our first significant swell of the “Winter Wave Season”, (which I define as Nove-Feb). That should peak in the AM, and will dish up OH to WOH sets for the better West facing breaks, (possibly even DOH + at the standout deepwater breaks). It has just enough West in it to wrap into the S/SW facing beaches, but the size there will be significantly muffled. 295-305 degrees will be the angle, and it will have stout 17-18 second intervals. I’m guessing the beach breaks will be rather walled and a tough paddle out, so a point or reef will probably be your best bet, unless you want too get a jump on your Navy Seal training.

* High tide will finally, likely, become a mid-morning ally – Fri 10:32 AM 5.50 feet High Tide

For Saturday morning we’ll see continued SOLID surf with that swell dishing up OH to WOH sets for the top West facing breaks. The angle remains the same and the interval numbers will start their slow, methodical fade over the next couple of days. Should be solid all day Friday and offer up a smaller version of the same on Saturday.
