SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 1-18-15
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For Sunday morning we should have solid surf with the top West facing breaks seeing head high to OH sets coming in from a 270-280 degree angle. Tides are pretty high the AM, which should soften things up a bit, but shouldn’t shut things down completely.
Looks like good conditions and pretty pumping waves. Have fun! I’ll be stuck in Riverside at my sons Soccer tournament, (Why Riverside???), so get a couple for me too!

The conditions look good again with variable winds in the 0-2 PH zone until 11AM and 5-7 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp hovers in the 70 degree range.
For Monday morning we’ll see a dropping swell, but that should still be good for chest to shoulder high sets for the better West facing beaches. A ripe, 6.61 high tide at 7:46AM will muffle the surf to a certain degree, but drain out more than a foot an hour heading into the afternoon.
By early late afternoon/early evening a new swell from 270-280 degrees will deliver shoulder to head high waves with OH sets for the best West facing breaks. This energy will move straight in from an extremely Westerly direction, so any place with a sniff of the West should see some decent swell bend in.

The conditionslook fair with variable winds in the 1-5 MPH zone all day long. The air temp hangs tough at 70 degrees.
For Tuesday morning that Westerly energy will peak, with the top, deep water, West facing breaks going well Overhead on the sets. The saving grace for the beach breaks will be a ridiculous 6.73 foot high tide at at 8:30 AM which could foster some shape in the AM, but as the tide drops it will likely become walled. The Points and Reefs should be the ticket and with all of the Westerly direction in the swell and even the South facing breaks should be clicking to a certain degree.
The winds look to be swirling, but mild, so I’m anticipating fairly clean conditions throughout the day.

The conditionslook okay with light and variable confused winds in the 1-4 MPH zone until around 1 PM and 2-6 MPH out of the West in the late afternoon. The air temp dips a few degrees to 67.
For Wednesday morning that swell will taper off a bit but remain SOLID with head high to OH sets and a few stray haymakers keeping it real. Tides play a role in the severity of the thump, but if you can find the right window of opportunity you might bag a few winners!

The conditions look decent again with variable winds in the 1-4 MPH zone until noon and 6-8 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 66 degrees.
For Thursday morning the surf will dip down another notch or two in size but there will still be some fun, chest to shoulder high sets for the better West facing breaks. Make note of the tides again… pretty ripe around 10AM.
!!!*** Looks like we have a real humdinger of a swell filling in on Friday with some heavy doses of adrenalin on the horizon. Stay tuned, ready the netti pot and practice those breathing exercises.

I’ll be back on Monday with the next update!
