SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 5-14-13
For Wednesday morning we’ll see short interval, steeply angled, NW wind swell in the waist to chest high range for top West facing breaks. There will be the occasional knee to waist high set out of the SW but not enough to really bank on for a session. The conditions were pretty sloppy this morning, (Tuesday), but hopefully things will clean up for Wednesdays dawn patrol.

The conditions look fair for spots that like a Southerly wind. We should see SE breezes in the 4-7 MPH range until 10AM and those will get up to the 9-11 MPH range through the afternoon. The air temp will top out at 66 degrees.
Thursday morning looks to see more of the same with continued, steeply angled, 8-10 second wind swell from a 300-310 degree angle. Top spots will be in the waist to chest high range, with infrequent sets out of the SW.

The conditions look fair with variable breezes out of the S/SE, in the 2-4 MPH range until 10AM and 12-15 MPH out of the SW until sundown. The air temp will get up to 67 degrees.
For Saturday morning starts off small as well with leftover knee to waist high, NW wind swell for the best West facing beaches. The better news is that some fresh, long interval SW energy will start to show in the late afternoon/early evening and should be good for chest to shoulder high sets by Sunday morning.

The conditions look fair with variable breezes out of the SE, in the 2-6 MPH range until 10AM and 11-13 MPH out of the SW until sundown. The air temp will get up to 68 degrees.
For Sunday morning that SW swell should dish up chest high plus surf for any beach with a peek at the South and shoulder to head high plus sets for top spots in the OC and San O’ areas.
