SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 9-12-13
SWELL ALERT – I formally retract my angry rant from yesterday 9-14-13. I went down the beach at 6AM with little to no hope of getting decent waves… much to my dismay the SW swell finally showed and there was solid chest to shoulder high sets, (with shape) all morning long. Best session I’ve had in 2 months or more. Not sure why the buoys are so deceptive lately but there’s swell sneaking in under the radar right now so get on it if you can. It was still glassy when I left at 9:30. What a difference a day makes!!!
HURRICANE WATCH 9-13-13
Satellite imagery shows an expansive, but disorganized area of thunderstorms off the Mexican coast just to the southwest of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. However, given the strong shear across this cluster of thunderstorms and its closeness to land, further development and organization over the next couple of days seems unlikely.
By Saturday morning both swells will will already start backing down, but there still should be plenty of fun little waves to be had out there.
The South facing breaks will dip down into the waist to chest high range and the consistency will lessen throughout the day.
The NW will drop off quicker leaving the West facing spots in the waist high range.

The conditions will be okay with variable winds in the 0-5 MPH zone until 10 and 9-12 MPH winds in the afternoon. The air temp will get up to a toasty 77 degrees.
For Sunday morning looks even smaller and less consistent as the surf continues to fade out. South swell waist high, NW swell knee to waist high. We’re heading back into lean times again so feast before we head back into famine mode!
