SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 1-10-16
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For Monday morning we’ll see some fresh swell from a 300-305 degree angle that will launch the better West facing breaks into the head high to OH range but that’s just the “lemon next to the Pie” as Bear from Big Wednesday would say. A much larger swell will be roaring down the coast shortly after and should be in full effect by Tuesday morning.

The conditions look tolerable with 2-5 MPH breezes out of the West until noon and a fairly mild 7-9 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. There is 0% chance of rain and the air temp tops out at 64 degrees.
For Tuesday morning some HGH like energy will fill in through the day and it looks like it might be potent as early as first light. This new swell will strut in with both guns blazin’ and shoot up the coast with a 5.8 foot, deep water swell, sporting 16-18 second interval waves from a Westerly angle of 285-295 degrees.
This will get into every nook and cranny again, and put the best West facing breaks into the OH to DOH + zone. Once again… look before you leap or you may find yourself in a heap of hurt!

For Wednesday morning the surf will slow down a hair, but continue to dish up plenty of size with head high to well OH sets for the better West facing breaks.
* Morning tides look good and the sea surface should be CLEAN!
