SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 10-27-15
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
HURRICANE WATCH: Olaf is now considered a post-tropical storm. It is still producing sustained winds of 40 mph, but it will continue to weaken over the next day or two over the open waters of the eastern North Pacific.
Elsewhere across the Eastern Pacific Basin, tropical development is not expected over the next 48 hours.
By Wednesday morning things should start to get real interesting with a combination of energy with
1. A SW ground swell, (14-16 second intervals from 210-215 degrees), which should be good for chest high surf at the exposed South facing breaks.
2. Hurricane Olaf swell, (13-15 second intervals from 255 degrees) shoulder high with larger sets for any beach receptive to that SW angle.
3. A beefy NW ground swell with muscle flexing 18-20 second intervals from a 300-310 degree angle will fill in later in the day and that will put the most exposed West facing breaks into the well Overhead zone for Thursday morning!
Hard to see how each individual break will react, but there will be plenty of swell in the water over the next few days! Happy Hunting and send in reports and pics. I will not name names or spots!

The conditions look fair + for the AM with variable breezes in the 1-4 MPH zone until noon and 6-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 78 degrees.
Thursday looks promising as that triple threat of swells carries us through the AM! The NW energy will be dominant, but the mix of swells could conjure up some wicked peaks if you find the right spot!
The most exposed West facing breaks will have the largest surf with top deep water breaks going head high to few feet overhead on the sets.
The Olaf energy will continue to contribute to the mix and other SW pulses will remain relevant through the morning.

The conditions look okay with variable breezes in the 1-4 MPH zone until noon and 9-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 79 degrees.
Friday morning should be another fun day for waves with continued size out of the NW swell in the head high + range with some larger sets at the top West facing beaches. We’ll also see pulses out of the SW from the ground swell and fading energy from Olaf.
There’s a nice tide push through the morning hours.

Halloween morning looks fun with with smaller, fading NW swell in the chest high plus range in the AM and waist high + surf out of the SW.
Okay tide push early.

The conditions look good for the AM with variable breezes out of the East in the 1-5 MPH zone until noon and 7-9 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp backs down a hair to 82 degrees.
Sunday morning looks smaller but with all of the swell out there, there should be some waves lurking in the shadows. All swells will be on the fade for the AM, but some fresh, powerful, NW Ground swell will work it’s way down the line through the day. The energy will have 18-20 second intervals, (as did its predecessor), so expect some powerful lines at the better West facing breaks.
What a great October and an excellent way start our November!
