SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 1-28-16
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For Friday morning that same swell will continue to provide OH + sets through the morning as a larger swell starts to fill in later in the day!
* Looks like another thumping swell will be in play for the Saturday morning show! This one will roar in from a 290-300 degree angle with 19-21 second intervals! Top West facing breaks will be OH to DOH zone with a chance at some even larger death sets ambushing unsuspecting surfers! The swell looks SOLID but our Santa Ana condition will be shutting down and with it those great offshore conditions we saw earlier in the week.

The conditions should be tolerable with variable winds in the 1-5 MPH zone until noon and then 5-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp dips a hair to 70 degrees.
For Saturday morning the swell will hold and continue to rock the top West facing beaches with OH to DOH surf in the morning and then slowly start to taper off in the afternoon.

The conditions should be fair with light and variable breezes out of the East until 10AM and then 5-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon The air temp dips to 64 degrees.
Sunday morning looks a bit smaller, (but still plenty of juice), with the top West facing breaks serving up Head High to OH + sets.
Looks like a wicked little storm will be pushing in quickly through the day and there will be a good chance of rain and some heinous winds whipping up mid-morning!

The conditions should start out okay for the early AM but deteriorate quickly late morning. We’ll start off with 1-6 MPH variable breezes until 9/10AM and those will whip up to 20-30 + MPH shortly after and continue to gust into Monday. There’s an 40% chance of rain and the air temp plummets to 60 degrees.
* Remember that it is advised to stay out of the water for 72 hours after any significant rain event. Just stating the obvious, I’m sure most of you already know the drill!
For Monday morning we’ll see a different spin on big surf with a dying ground swell and completely pumping wind swell. I’m anticipating crummy, confused, jumbo wind swell in the oh to DOH zone. Barring an act of God it won’t be pretty out there.

The conditions look atrocious on paper today with all day double digit onshore winds. Not as gust as Sunday afternoon but if I was a betting man I’d bet the house it will be crappy. The air temp dips to 61 degrees.
For Tuesday morning the surf will remain in the head high to well OH zone but it will once again be of the confused wind swell variety,
