SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED on 4-8-2019
For Tuesday morning we’ll see the tail end of that NW energy, but the winds will whip up in the afternoon and start to kick up some decent sized wind swell… the only problem is that the conditions will deteriorate quickly. The surf will roll in from 300-310 degrees and have 13-14 second intervals.
We will also see some fresh South swell move into the picture from a fairly steep 185-190 degrees.

ABOUT THE SWELLMAGNET FORECAST – One of the most exciting–and yet most challenging–aspects of surfing is the sheer variety of waves and weather conditions that affect the entire surfing experience. Any surfer who is interested in going beyond the most basic level of surfing will have to develop the ability to interpret waves and environmental conditions. This is important for ensuring both a safe and enjoyable experience.
The main difficulty lies in predicting how exactly the ocean and the environment will behave at any given time. One day, you could be riding four-footers all day and the next, you might be facing a glasslike surface with nary a ripple.
