SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED on October-8th-2019
HURRICANE WATCH:There are currently no organized tropical systems across the eastern Pacific Ocean and tropical development is not expected through the course of the week. The next threat for development may not come until early next week, well away from the southwestern coast of Mexico.
For Wednesday morning we’ll see continued small, waist high SW energy from that same 205 degree angle with 14-15 second intervals. The more exciting news is that we’re slated a slight pick up in short interval NW wind swell from 300 degrees with 10 second intervals. The better West facing beaches should dish up some waist to possibly chest high peaks.

This is important for ensuring both a safe and enjoyable experience.
