The conditions look tolerable with variable winds in the 1-3 MPH zone until 10AM and 10-15 MPH out of the west in the afternoon. The air temp dips to 72 degrees.
Saturday morning the combination of South swells will kick off the morning with waist to chest to high sets with some larger scout sets making their presence known as the day wears on.
The South facing beaches will get the brunt of this energy but due to the power of the swell, (20-24 second intervals), some diffused energy will bleed into many of the Westerly facing beaches as well.
South swell #1 – 2.8 feet deepwater swell with 16-18 second intervals – should dish up chest high sets for the dawn patrol and continue to build momentum through the morning into the afternoon.
South swell #2 – 4.1 feet deepwater swell with 16-18 second intervals – should see some scout set start to show up later in the day with the meat and potatoes being served up Sunday morning!

The conditions aren’t great but passable with variable 1-4 MPH winds out of the West until 10AM and 10-14 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 78 degrees.
Sunday morning, I hate over-hyping South swells… but this looks like the money day with long interval lines wrapping into the top South facing breaks. Super exposed spots like San O’, the OC and the Points to the North should all be firing with OH to well OH sets. Places like the Wedge could possibly go DOH.
We’ve been starved for waves for quite some time so I”m expecting the froth meter to be off of the charts, with highly aggressive behavior and huge crowds at the top spots. Why does it have to be Sunday?????

The conditions will mirror those of Saturday with variable 1-4 MPH winds out of the West until 10AM and 8-14 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp dips to 67 degrees.
The current water temps Newport 62 degrees, Huntington 61 degrees, the South Bay showed as 65 degrees, (but felt more like 60 to me this morning), Santa Monica 62 degrees and Malibu 57 degrees.
I’ll be back on Friday with a look into next week!
