SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 3-16-14
For Monday morning we’ll see some fresh ground swell move in from a 295-300 degree angle and 16-18 second intervals. This should be good for head high to overhead sets for the better West facing beaches.
There will also be a decent tide push for the early risers.

For Tuesday morning definitely has some potential as that 295-300 degree ground swell fades through the day. The morning should be good for shoulder to head high sets for the better West facing breaks.

By Wednesday morning the surf will be on the fade but the better West facing breaks should still dish up chest to shoulder high sets for the morning sessions. It will be a combo of dying ground swell and some 300 degree, 10-12 second wind swell.
