SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 2-11-13
For Tuesday morning that ground swell will hang in there and be good for chest to shoulder high plus sets early, and then taper off throughout the day. The better news is that some reinforcement energy will slide down the line, with 14-16 second intervals, from a 300 degree angle and catapult top West facing breaks into the head high plus zone. Once again there’s a nice little tide push for the early birds.
