SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 5-17-13
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/SSE, in the 5-9 MPH range until 11AM and 8-10 MPH out of the West until sundown. The air temp will get up to 68 degrees.
For Sunday morning that SW swell, (from a liberal angle of 210-215 degrees), 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.
We’ll also see some steeply angled, short interval, NW wind swell from an angle of 300-310 degrees mix into the West facing breaks.

The conditions look pretty good again with breezes out of the SE/SSE, in the 4-7 MPH range until 11AM and 9-11 MPH out of the SW until sundown. The air temp will get up to 68 degrees.
Monday morning is shaping up to be another fun day for surf as the SW energy backs down a hair and the wind swell picks up a bit more. The top South facing breaks will see a steady pick of chest to shoulder high sets.
