SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 4-5-14
We’ve been working hard on those Hi Def cam installations and they should start paying dividends by mid week. Thanks for your patience… we’re getting things done as quickly as humanly possible!
Sunday morning looks better as the weather warms and the winds go offshore through the morning hours. The surf should be waist to chest high on the sets for the best West facing breaks courtesy of some 12-14 second second NW energy from a 300-305 degree angle and some shorter interval wind swell.

The conditions are leaning toward fair + with 1-6 MPH breezes out of the NE/NNE until 11AM and those will get up to 10-14 MPH in the afternoon. The air warms up to a toasty 73 degrees on the sand.
Monday morning looks slightly smaller with a waist high plus to possibly chest high sets. A combination of 8-10 second interval, (300 degree + swell), and some longer, 16-18 second interval NW energy, should give the best West facing breaks at a least a little something to work with.
