SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 4-2-14
* We are in process of upgrading all of our cams to HD which might sound like an easy operation but it has proven to be a bit difficult. The end result however, is quite impressive. Give us a month from now to get everything taken care of but be patient in the interim. It’s all free! SO JUST HANG TIGHT! YOU WILL BE STOKED!!!
For Thursday morning we’ll see surf in the waist to chest high plus range, (10 seconds at 295-300 degrees), and a glimmer of hope that the conditions clean up.
