SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 5-16-13
It never ceases to amaze me how much better life seems after getting a couple fun days of surf under your belt!. That wind swell was just what I needed to get some surf stoke going again and it looks like we should be right back in the thick of things by Sunday morning and see a decent mix of swells all week long! Stay tuned….
Friday morning looks to be weak with a mix of waist high plus wind swell and knee to waist high sets for the best South facing beaches.

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.

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.
