For Friday morning things will start out slow with waist to chest high surf early, but that won’t last long. We will see yet another NW swell move in later in the day and that energy should be in full swing for Saturday morning.
This swell will come down the line from a 285-295 degree angle with 14-16 second intervals. We’ll also continue to see NW wind swell mixing in. The better West facing breaks will be in the shoulder to head high range, (with possibly some bigger swells at the top spots).
*There’s another decent little tide push through the morning.

The conditions should be okay with variable, 1-5 MPH winds until noon and 9-11 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. I included the wind projections below so you can see what spots deviate from the norm. The air temp remains a toast 70 degrees.
For Saturday morning that swell should be dishing up shoulder to head high sets for the top West facing breaks. To reiterate, it will be a combo of NW wind swell and ground swell and top spots will see shoulder to head high surf.
*There’s a decent little tide push through the early morning again.

The conditions look fair with variable, 2-5 MPH breezes out of the East until noon and 8-10 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. I included the wind projections below so you can see what spots deviate from the norm. The air temp tops out at 70 degrees.
For Easter Sunday we’re looking at fairly small surf in the waist high plus range as the energy continues to fade through the day.

The conditions look okay with variable, 3-6 MPH breezes until 10AM and 9-11 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. There’s a 10% chance of rain and the air temp tops out at 71 degrees.
For Monday morning things will start off on the small side but fresh NW swell will start working it’s way in later in the day. The bad thing is that along with the surf will come some blustery winds and ultimately poor conditions.

The conditions look to start off okay with variable winds in the 3-8 MPH zone until 11AM and 11-20 MPH out of the West throughout the afternoon. There’s a 10% chance of rain and the air plummets to 66 degrees.
For Tuesday morning there will be plenty of surf out there with a mix of short interval, NW wind swell and medium interval NW ground swell. The top West facing breaks should see an OH to well OH mish-mash of confused surf with heavy winds whipping across the surface.

The conditions look piss poor with the onshore gusts from Monday carrying over into Tuesday. We are scripted to see double digit winds right out of the gate and those will whip up to 20-30 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp remains 64 degrees.
Water Temps: are as follows – Malibu 57, Santa Monica 58, Hermosa 63, Huntington 56 & Newport 59 degrees.
I’ll be back on Friday to tighten things up!
