SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 1-8-15
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For Friday morning we’ll finally see more size and strength again as some liberally angled NW energy tracks in from a 285-295 degree angle with 14-16 second intervals. The best West facing breaks will dish up shoulder to head high plus sets as the swell fills in through the day. Things could start off slow early but there will be hope on the horizon!
* There’s just a minor tide surge in the morning and even the peak high tide around 11AM is not unreasonably high. All systems go!

The conditionslook fair + with light and variable winds in the 1-5 MPH zone all day long. The air temp dips to 66 degrees.
For Saturday morning that same swell from 285-295 degrees will deliver shoulder to head high plus sets for the best West facing breaks. Due to the Westerly angle of this energy at least a little swell will leak into the South facing breaks.
Conditions, surf and tides all look good on paper so keep your fingers crossed.

The conditionslook fantastic with offshore winds in the 1-2 MPH zone until noon and variable 5-6 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 65 degrees.
For Sunday morning that NW energy will be on the fade with shorter intervals, less consistency and smaller sets. The top spots should continue to see some fun chest high plus sets through the morning and back down further in the afternoon.

The conditionslook good again as far as winds go with Easterly winds in the 7-12 MPH zone all day long. There is a 40% chance of rain and the air temp remains at 65 degrees.
For Monday morning we’ll see the hospice portion of that NW energy as it’s wheeled off to experience a slow but comfortable death. The morning hours will be in the waist high zone early but the good news is that some small reinforcement swell will start to show later in the day.
The new energy will come in from that same 285-295 degree angle as it’s predecessor but be a bit smaller with chest high plus sets for the better West facing breaks. That won’t likely really come into play until Tuesday but you never know…

The conditions excellent with NE/NNE winds in the 4-14 MPH zone until noon, (stronger below passes and canyons), and timid, 2-3 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at toasty 74.
For Tuesday morning the new NW energy from that 285-295 degree angle should be in full swing by first light with chest to possibly shoulder high sets for the best deep water, West facing breaks.
