SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 12-28-14
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
Wow what a run of swell! Basically a non stop barrage of OH to DOH surf with a few head high days mixed in. The Netti pot has been working around the clock for me as I have plenty of beatings under my belt at this point in the winter swell season. 1/2 of the time I was basically an aquatic crash test dummy, but the few bombs I made were well worth the abuse endured! A surf scenario of this caliber doesn’t come around too often, so do yourself a favor and enjoy it while it’s here!
STATE OF THE UNION: Unfortunately, for the time being everything has dropped off. The surf dropped, the air temps dropped and the water temps, (after holding out until late December), finally caved in and plunged into the 60 degree range. While still not the ice cream headache, below 60 degree temps, we had on offer last year, I found myself knocking the spider webs out of my 4/3 and searching for my booties. Prepare for the inevitable chill!!!
For Monday morning we’ll see continued waist to maybe chest high surf out of the NW from a 300-305 degree angle and 12-14 second intervals. This energy will be strongest in the morning and slowly peter out through the day.

For Tuesday morning we’ll see another dip in size with waist high surf out of the NW.
Until the jet stream drops down again it looks like we be saddled with sub-par surf.

The conditionslook tolerable with Easterly winds in the 3-8 MPH zone all day long then turning stiff onshore under the cloak of darkness. The air temp tops out at 58 degrees.
For Wednesday morning it looks like we’ll have a sh#Tload of wind all through the day. On Sunday, (the 28th), the wind models are calling for SE/SSE gusts in the 13-25 MPH zone all day long so at the very least that should generate some SW wind swell in the waist to chest high zone. Things could possibly change over the next couple of days, so stay tuned.

The conditionslook interesting with SE/SSE gusts in the 13-25 MPH zone all day long. This could go either way… sometimes certain breaks embrace the SE winds, so don’t count out Wednesday just yet. The air temp tops out at at a chilly 54 degrees.
For Thursday morning we’ll see another weak day of surf as we dip back into the waist high zone. Nothing to really talk about as the high tide monster creeps back into the morning surf equation.
