SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 1-31-16
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For Monday morning we’ll see a different spin on big surf with a dying ground swell and sizeable wind swell. I’m anticipating crummy, confused, surf in the OH to well OH zone. Barring an act of God it won’t be pretty out there.
* Pretty good downpour today. Observe the “72 hour rule” as the water is surely toxic at this point. If you must surf be sure to wear ear plugs and clean out every orifice on your body once you get out!

The conditions look atrocious on paper today with all day double digit onshore winds blowing 16-30 MPH. The air temp tops out at 61 degrees.
For Tuesday morning the surf will be in the head high + zone but it will once again be of the confused wind swell variety. The winds are supposed to turn around though, (as a mild Santa Ana Condition builds), so there is a glimmer of hope that the conditions could clean up.
