SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 12-4-14
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For Friday morning it’s hard to say how quickly this wind swell will back down. So far it’s size and strength has far exceeded what it looked like on the models so it could retain a little size for one last hurrah. On paper we’ll hover in the waist to chest high range for the better West facing beaches, but it could possibly be bigger.
* Tides will likely put the clamps on the morning surf.

The conditions look pretty good with the wind models calling for 2-4 MPH breezes out of the E/NE until around noon and those go 4-6 out of the West throughout the afternoon. The air temp checks in at 69 degrees.
For Saturday morning we’ll just see some smallish leftover energy out of the NW. The top spots should see waist high plus sets on the right tide. The surf will be crippled by a huge high tide through the prime morning surf hours but recede quickly after 8:19 AM.
