SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 3-20-14
Friday morning we’ll see a steeply angled, small but long interval swell move in from 305-310 degrees. That energy will be accompanied by some smaller, short interval wind swell. The top West facing beaches should go waist high plus with possibly some chest high sets.
Due to the steep nature of this energy most spots will get blanked!

The conditions should be okay for breaks that like a Southerly wind. We’ll see 3-5 MPH winds out of the South until 11AM and 8-10 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp dips to 66 degrees.
For Saturday morning, what little ground swell we saw on Friday will be on the fade. We’ll need to pin our hopes on some blustery breezes to kick up some wind swell for the AM sessions. The top spots should see that combination of energy pay dividends in the waist high plus zone for only the most exposed beaches.
