SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 4-7-13
For Monday morning we’ll have a declining NW ground swell and a dying SW swell combining with more wind swell and the best West facing breaks should go shoulder to head high plus. The wind models look iffy at best so the conditions will likely be poor.

The conditions look highly questionable with double digit onshore winds out of the gate and those will whip up into the mid 20’s in the afternoon. The air temp will top out at 68 degrees.
Tuesday morning will see head high to overhead wind swell for the morning but based on the wind models it won’t be pretty.

The conditions will be iffy again, with var breezes out of the N/NW at 7-10 MPH early and those will jump up into the 10-18 MPH zone out of the West winds for the afternoon. The air temp will top out at 69 degrees.
Wednesday morning looks interesting if things clean up for the dawn patrol. No real significant swell but between some small 16-18 second ground swell and that local wind swell there should be waist to chest high peaks for the better West facing breaks. The winds look great through the morning and there’s a little tide push for the dawn patrollers.
