SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 3-28-14
* We are in process of upgrading all of our cams to HD which might sound like an easy operation but it has proven to be a bit difficult. The end result however, is quite impressive. Give us a month from now to get everything taken care of but be patient in the interim… sh#t. It’s all free! SO JUST HANG TIGHT! YOU WILL BE STOKED!!!
Saturday morning is looking pretty feeble for the morning with just smallish waist high plus surf on tap, and that will be fighting it’s way through a rather large high tide so keep your expectations low.

The conditions look about the same with variable, 2-5 MPH winds until 11 and 10-12 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 66 degrees.
By Sunday morning we’ll see some fresh NW energy by first light. This should be good for shoulder to head high sets at the top West facing beaches, but the winds go onshore again so it may be a little junky.

The conditions look iffy with 5-8 MPH West winds until 11 and up to 20 MPH of the West in the afternoon. There’s a 30% chance of rain and the air temp tops out at 67 degrees.
For Monday morning the swell will continue to dish up surf in the shoulder high plus zone for top West facing breaks. The conditions look iffy, but todays wind models are casting a more positive light for the early risers.

The conditions could go either way but the wind models are leaning toward offshore with light and variable, 1-5 MPH breezes early, but after 11AM we’ll see 15-20 MPH winds out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 66 degrees.
Tuesday morning, (April Fools Day) looks a bit smaller with 10-12 second periods from that same steep 300 degree angle. The exposed West facing beaches should go waist to chest high on the sets. There will be a decent tide push through the morning but the winds are looking suspect.
