HURRICANE WATCH September 16th, 2014 – Tropical Storm Polo is picking up right where Oldile left off. End result – lots of damage for Mex but no surf for So Cal!!!
For Wednesday morning that 210-215 degree energy will continue to dish up powerful, chest to head high sets as the intervals drop to a still respectable, 16-18 seconds. It will definitely still have some pop to it and the better South facing breaks should be pretty good when the sets roll in.

The conditions look decent with variable winds in the 1-3 MPH zone until 10AM and then those bump up to 10-14 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 86 degrees.
By Thursday morning that LONG interval SW energy will shorten to 16 seconds, and the sets will come in with less frequency, but there should still be some fun waves rolling through if you have the patience.
We should also see some fresh, 12-14 second, medium interval swell, moving in from the NW. This should be good for some waist high plus sets from a fairly steep, 310 degree angle.

The conditions look decent with variable winds in the 1-3 MPH zone until 10AM and then those bump up to 10-12 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 82 degrees.
By Friday morning there will be little to no evidence of the SW energy left. We’ll be reliant solely upon that NW energy, which should be good for one more day of waist high plus surf from that same 305-310 degree angle.

The conditions look tolerable with variable onshore winds in the 2-6 MPH zone until 11AM and then those bump up to 10-13 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 73 degrees.
By Saturday morning we’ll head back into blah zone with just small, leftover, waist high sets for the top spots. A pretty high tide at 8:30AM will definitely slow things down so you might want to crack it early if you want to scrape up a couple of early bird worms!

The conditions look okay with light and variable winds in the 1-3 MPH zone until 10AM and then those pick up to 10-12 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at scorching 77 degrees.
Sunday morning looks like a good time to go to church and pray for surf… unfortunately, knee to waist high is all that will be on offer.
