SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 3-23-14
For Monday morning get that extra beauty sleep. Uncertain conditions and a glaring lack of surf will make likely make for an uninspired experience. Check the cams early and if it doesn’t look up to snuff roll over. I’d say waist high plus at best with questionable conditions.

The conditions look average at best with variable 3-6 MPH winds until 11 and 9-11 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 65 degrees.
For Wednesday morningwe’ll see a slight bump in surf with waist to maybe chest high sets at the stand out West facing beaches that can take a steep 300 degree swell. The conditions look compromised, and unless there are some drastic changes to the wind and wave models over the next day, my wake up alarm will remain in coma mode.

The conditions look poor with 7-14 MPH onshore winds early and a 50% chance of rain. The air temp tops out at 63 degrees.
For Thursday morning should have a little more size with chest to shoulder high sets at the standout West facing breaks. Looks like it might be a little junky out there, but there will be some 12-14 second interval swell from a continued steep angle of 295-300 degrees.
Not looking real promising but hey, its late March!
