Here are some great 2016 El Nino Surf shots from the South Bay – The guy getting barreled is hard charging Jeffery O’Donnel and the guy behind the lens is Long time South Bay Loc and Hall of Fame Surfer Ted Robinson!
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 2-12-16
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
Saturday morning will be PUMPING, with OH to DOH sets at most West facing breaks and possibly some larger, “widow makers” outsiders at the best deep water spots like Blacks etc. The conditions look very good so it will just be a matter of finding the right spot on the right tide.
Reefs and points will be the best bet and if you’re not a big fan of big surf check out some of the more sheltered South facing breaks, (this swell should get into just about everywhere).

The conditions don’t change much with 2-5 MPH breezes out of the N/NE/NNE all day long, (stronger below the passes and canyons). The air temp tops out at 78 degrees.
For Sunday morning, (Valentines Day), Cupid will continue to show us some love as solid swell hangs in there throughout the day. The surf will dip further, but continue to dish up solid OH to well OH sets for the better West facing beaches and the stand out deep water spots may still dish up some DOH bombs!
