SURF FORECAST UPDATED 12-14-12
Saturday morning looks a bit smaller with just some waist to possibly chest high NW energy. Another beasty high tide will be in play for the AM, so schedule your surf accordingly.

The conditions should be decent with variable winds out of the N/NE until 11AM and 10-15 MPH West winds in the afternoon. Look for an air temp of 60 degrees.
Sunday morning looks smaller with just some knee to waist high plus surf. There should be a little relief from the tide at first light but that will steam roll the bumps as the tide rolls in.

The conditions look fair with variable Easterly winds at 4-9 MPH all day and there’s a 20% chance of rain on the table. Look for an air temp of 58 degrees.
Monday morning should get another little shot in the arm as we see some new, 300 degree, 14-16 second interval swell move down the line and put the best spots in the waist to possibly chest high zone.

The conditions look pretty good with E/NE winds into the early afternoon and mild Westerly breezes in the 4-6 MPH zone until sundown. Look for an air temp of 58 degrees.
Tuesday morning will start off on the small side with waist high plus sets for the better West facing breaks, but the good news is that some new, 16-18 second interval swell from a 295-300 degree angle will fill in late in the day. Unfortunately it looks like the winds will really whip up early and could damage the conditions for Wednesday.

The conditions look sketchy at best with mild onshore breezes at first light and those will hop up into double digits around 8/9AM into the 10-25 MPH range. There’s also a 30% chance of rain and we’ll see an air temp of 59 degrees.
The current water temps are as follows – Newport 59 degrees, Huntington 59 degrees, the South Bay showed as 62 degrees, Santa Monica 61 degrees and Malibu 59 degrees.
I’ll be back on Sunday with a look into next week.
