SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 3-25-14
______________________________________________________________________________

For Wednesday morningwe’ll see a slight bump in surf, with waist to chest high plus 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.

For Thursday morning should have a little more size with chest to head high sets at the standout West facing breaks. Looks like it will still 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!
