SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 2-26-16
2-25-16 – We have isolated the problem with the streams and our technicians are actively working to get us back up to speed. We should be good again by Monday, (I’m told)! Thank you for your patience! contact us
For Saturday morning another thumping swell should be in play for the dawn patrol. This next system will also have quite a bit of West in it tracking in at a 285-290 degree angle. This swell will also pack quite a punch with ass kicking 18-20 second intervals and OH to DOH set waves for the best West facing breaks.
Once again, the West facing beaches will likely be a bit daunting, but this swell should get into most all breaks with even the South facing beaches getting a nice little taste of the action.

The conditions look just like Friday with variable 1-3 MPH breezes until 11AM and 5-7 MPH winds out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp dips to 69 degrees.
For Sunday morning the surf will see a subtle decrease in size, but the better West facing breaks will be seeing OH to Well OH sets. This energy will slowly continue to back down through the day but there will be plenty of surf out there for the taking.
