SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 5-3-15
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
For Monday morning the surf should be pumping as swell #1 continues it’s slow fade and swell #2 holds with 18-20 second intervals, and another small NW wind swell weighs in with waist high waves.
The better most exposed South facing beaches should see overhead to way overhead sets with standouts seeing some larger “haymaker” waves rolling in.
The conditions are a little questionable so look for a wind sheltered spot or a spot with lots of kelp!

The conditions look iffy with onshore winds in the 2-5 MPH zone until 10AM and 10-15 MPH out of the west in the afternoon. The air temp dips to 63 degrees.
For Tuesday morning swell #1 will be on it’s way out and swell #2 will continue to dish up overhead + sets for the top spots as the intervals lessen to 16 seconds. Still tons of surf out there so hopefully the winds comply and we’re really able to take advantage of all of the energy!

The conditions look tolerable with variable winds in the 1-5 MPH zone until 10AM and 10-15 MPH out of the west in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 64 degrees.
Wednesday morning we’ll see some fresh swell out of the NW from a steep 310-315 degree angle coupled with some medium, 12-14 second interval swell from a 305 degree angle. Combined they should be good for some chest high sets at the MOST EXPOSED West facing beaches.
In conjunction with that our South swell will continue its slow, methodical fade dipping to 14 second intervals and sporadic chest to shoulder high sets.

The conditions look fair for breaks that can handle a South wind with 5-8 MPH out of the SE/SSE until 11AM and 10-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp gets up to 65 degrees on the sand.
Thursday morning that wind swell will hold with chest high sets at the top spots and the South swell will continue die but dish up inconsistent chest high sets.
