SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 4-17-14
Friday morning should see some tiny lines with some small NW wind swell, (8-10 second intervals), from a steep angle of 310 degrees. The top South facing breaks should do a little better with waist high plus sets from a steep 185 degrees. The top spots in the OC and San O’ areas should produce larger sets once the tide starts to fill in.

Saturday morning looks like a real snoozer with just smallish, NW wind swell in the water. The best spots should see knee to waist high crumblers through the morning.

Sunday morning – EASTER- should be a little better with some fresh, long interval, S/SW ground swell from a 185-190 degree angle. The most exposed South facing spots should see chest high plus sets!
A minus tide at 8:23AM may slow down most spots through the morning hours but we should see improvement mid morning early afternoon.
