SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 3-31-15
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For APRIL FOOLS DAY it looks like we’ll see an unusually strong ground swell out of the W/NW. The Aleutian Islands will whip up a “One Day Wonder” type of swell that hasn’t been seen in quite some time. Long, 16-18 second interval lines should roar into almost every beach with 280-310 degree angle. The top West facing breaks should go OH to DOH so be ready for some serious power!
In addition to that thumping swell we’ll also see some 4 foot, deep water, 16-18 second interval swell out of the SW from a liberal angle of 190-220 degrees. The combination of these swells should make for some epic peaks that have beach breaks, point breaks and reef breaks pumping with perfect shape all day long!
The conditions look flawless so this will certainly be one of the best days of the 2015 season thus far. Whatever you have on your plate for the day be sure scoop it into dumpster and make room for a solid 2 hour surf!

The conditions should be as good as they get as high pressure roars into town for a one day stint and conjures up some magical 3-15 MPH breezes straight out of the East. Those should start at 12AM and continue all the way until 12AM the the next day. The air temp jumps up to a toasty 83 degrees and there shouldn’t be a cloud in the sky.
For Thursday morning things will change dramatically as the all swells drop off and the winds aren’t quite so kind to us.
It looks like we’ll see a dying SW swell and a decent amount of wind swell with 10-12 second intervals for a steep 300-310 degree angle. The top West facing breaks should see chest to head high wind peaks with top spots seeing larger sets.
