SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 3-26-13
Not a bad run for March… seems like it did the same thing last year but unfortunately it looks like we’ll slip into a bit of a surf slump for the foreseeable future. There is some activity down in the Southern Hemisphere worth keeping an eye on but I’m not ready to get the hype wheel rolling just yet.
On Thursday morning we’ll be dependent on some small, long interval NW swell from a steep 310 degree angle. This will put the top West facing breaks in the waist high range.
There’s a decent tide push through the early morning which can only help us out.

The conditions should be fair with light and variable winds at 2-5 MPH until 11AM and 10-13 MPH West winds in the afternoon. The air temp will top out at 63 degrees on the sand.
Friday morning looks worse with no swell of interest in the water. The best spots will see knee to waist high surf. Once again there’s a little tide push through the morning.
