SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 4-21-13
Monday morning looks pretty weak with some small, knee to waist high wind swell and remnant Southerly energy.
We’ll also see some fresh, steeply angled, (not as steep as it’s predecessor at 180-185 degrees), Southerly ground swell move in late in the day. This will, once again be a difficult angle for most breaks, but top spots should see chest to shoulder high sets by sundown.

The conditions look decent for beaches that can handle a SOuth wind with SE/SSE breezes in the 3-6 MPH zone until 11AM and those will get up to the 10-12 MPH zone out of the West for the afternoon. The air temp will top out at 66 degrees.
Tuesday morning looks pretty weak for the West facing beaches with some small, knee to waist high wind swell.
The GOOD NEWS is that the new South swell should should be in full swing and dish up some nice, chest to shoulder high sets for the most exposed spots in the OC and San O’ areas.
The tide looks a little fat around 8:30 but overall it shouldn’t do too much damage at the beach breaks.

The conditions look fair again with SE breezes in the 2-5 MPH zone until 11AM and those will get up to the 8-10 MPH zone out of the West for the afternoon. The air temp will top out at 64 degrees.
By Wednesday morning the South swell will begin a slow, methodical fade as the surf becomes smaller and less consistent through the day and in Thursday. The top breaks should still see some fun chest high plus sets.
