SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 3-4-14
Surfed the South Bay again this morning, (3/4/14) and it was still like floating in giant petrie dish. Man there was some foul stuff floating around out there. Some the schmegma was unidentifiable, but it’s the stuff you can’t see that you have to worry about. When I got home I treated my ears with alcohol, hit the netti pot a couple times, took a hot shower and said a silent prayer that nothing crawled up my ass! We’ll see what happens, hopefully I don’t start growing a tail or a third eye!
Wednesday morning looks like another sizable day for waves with the top breaks pulling in overhead to way overhead sets. It will once again be due to that new, long interval ground swell from 280-290 degrees. There will be plenty of punch out there, so the points and reefs will likely be the best bet!

Another round of Westerly swell will fill in through the day with 14-16 second intervals from a 280-290 degrees.
