SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 2-8-15
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
On Monday morning some fresh Westerly swell should start to show in the AM with respectable 12-14 second intervals. The better West facing breaks should start off with head high plus surf with top spots going a couple of feet overhead.
As the swell fills in through the day the top deepwater spots should go well OH to DOH with even a few larger widow maker sets. This energy is moving in from a very Westerly 265-275 degree angle and should impact any beach that gets a peek at the West, (and be force fed into the South facing breaks), so this should spread things out nicely.

The conditionslook a bit better on this mornings wind models. We should see variable breezes in the 1-5 MPH zone until 11AM and those shift to a Westerly direction at 8-11 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 69 degrees.
On Tuesday morning that swell should peak with continued 12-14 second intervals from that same 265-275 degree angle. The best West facing breaks should be well OH to DOH, with the top deep water spots producing bigger Butterfly sets, (the kind that humble you).
High pressure starts to weave it’s way into the picture, so the conditions should be good. The West facing beach breaks look to be reminiscent of a torturous Navy Seal training exercise so take a good luck before paddling out.
The points, reefs and more sheltered South facing breaks will likely be the best bet. Happy hunting! Be careful out there.

The conditionsshould be pretty good early with variable winds out of the East in the 1-5 MPH zone until 11AM and 4-10 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. High pressure will start to work it’s way into the picture so we could see some stronger breezes below the passes and canyons. The air temp tops out at 73 degrees.
For Wednesday morningthat energy should ease a bit and become more user friendly but continue to deliver solid surf in the OH to well OH zone for the best West facing breaks.
The angle continues to have a sh#%load of West in it so all spots that worked on Tuesday should just be a smaller more manageable version of that. High pressure and tons of Surf… might be a good day to come down with that 24 hour bug that’s been going around… just don’t drown or the Boss will know!

The conditionslook excellent as high pressure anchors up and Mother Nature blows some Santa Ana wind kisses our way. The wind models are calling for N/NNE breezes in the 5-12 MPH range for most spots with much stronger winds rifling through the passes and canyons. The air temp skyrockets to a balmy 82 degrees!
For Thursday morningthe swell will continue to dish up head high sets for most beaches and a bit OH at the most exposed West facing spots.
Looks like another swell will fill in on Friday. Next on the list will come in from a 290 degree angle with long 16-18 second intervals.
It should be an interesting week!

The conditionslook good as our high pressure remain intact and continues to blow out of the N/NE/NNE to the tune of 6-10 MPH at most spots with much stronger gusts funneling through the passes and canyons. This should go on all day with continued air temps in the low 80’s on the sand.
The current water temps Newport 62 degrees, Huntington 61 degrees, the South Bay showed as 62 degrees, Santa Monica 62 degrees and Malibu 60 degrees.
I’ll be back on Monday with the next update!
