SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED on 3-12-2019
For Wednesday morning we’ll see some fresh NW swell with 17 second intervals from a really steep 305-315 degree angle. Most of the energy will slide by us and into San Diego and Northern Baja, but the exposed West Facing Beaches should reel in head high to OH sets. We’ll also see some chest high + wind swell in the mix so it will definitely be worth a look.

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. Conditions can change drastically from day-to-day and even within the space of a couple of hours. To avoid wasted time and unproductive trips to the surf, it is essential to have access to reliable information on surf conditions.
