SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 4-9-13
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.
