SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 5-11-14
* 5-9-14 Submitted by Lev – GWS approx 5-6ft long launched completely out of the water twice. It was in the air at a 45 degree angle with its tail maybe 2 feet above the water. Discovery Channel type sh%t. Was surfing south of 40 at around 10am, handful of guys out. Shark was just outside the lineup.
* 5-8-14 Submitted by Gary Castro – Thursday morning paddle out around 39th/40th @ 0555. 5 surfers in the line up and one surfer paddling out witnessed full breach of 4-6ft juvenile GWS with a fish in his mouth.
At least 25 min. later I was paddling back out and between myself and another surfer, the distance of 40 ft, a triangular dorsal fin breaks the surface and submerges in an instant.
* 5-5-14 Another Juvenile Great White Shark was spotted cruising through the line up at El Porto again on Monday. In addition I, (along with 2 others), witnessed a 6-7 foot GWS jump completely out of the water near 45th street. If you see anything noteworthy out there, feel free to send us
* 5-8-14 A 4-5 footer was seen jumping at 34th st this morning – another possible juvenile GWS was spotted between 45th and the jetty. an email with the details.
Monday morning doesn’t look like a real barn burner, but there should be at least a little bit of swell to accompany the unbelievable weather.
We’ll see 2 swells in the water and neither of them carrying a whole lot of clout. From the NW we’ll have some steeply angled NW wind swell which will be good for waist high plus surf at the best West facing beaches.
Lastly we’ll see the trend of super steep, South swell continue with waist high plus sets from that same steep, 180 degree angle.

The conditions should be excellent as high pressure moves in and dishes up prime offshore conditions. We’ll see 4-12 MPH breezes out of the NE, (stronger below passes and canyons), until early afternoon and those will get up to 10-13 MPH out of the West in the later in the day. The air temp gets up to a sweltering 85 degrees on at the beaches.
Tuesday morning will start off slow everywhere, but the most exposed South facing breaks like Huntington, Newport and select spots in the San O’ area will see dying South swell, from that 180 degree angle, and some fresh, long interval, 180 degree energy start to pulse in late in the day. Top spots will go waist high plus by days end.

For Wednesday morning we will start off slow in the morning again but some long interval SW swell will move in later in the day. The top spots will see chest to shoulder high plus sets for only the top South facing beaches by sundown.

The conditions should be good again as high pressure moves in and promotes offshore conditions. We’ll see 4-12 MPH breezes out of the East, (stronger below passes and canyons), until early afternoon and those will get up to 10-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp gets up to an ungodly 96 degrees.
The current water temps Newport 63 degrees, Huntington 63 degrees, the South Bay showed as 60 degrees, Santa Monica 59 degrees and Malibu 58 degrees.
I’ll be back on Monday with the next update!
