Daily Southern California Forecast Overview

Slight increase in our surf for Friday but it may be hard to find in the fog.

Forecast Overview

The surf finally starts to crawl out of the cellar on Friday. It will still be on the small side through the morning (and then get slowed down by the midday tide) but the wave heights will slowly build through the day.

The Swell

New WNW energy (280-300) slowly fills as we move through Friday while another new (but small) pulse of S-SSW swell (190-210) increases throughout the day. Again the swell mix starts off pretty slow, but the surf will get a little peppier and more consistent as the swell moves in.

The Surf

Again look for lots of spots to be small…in the ankle-waist size range on Friday, particularly in the morning since the swell starts off slow. A few of the very best top spots, or breaks that have good exposure to the blend of WNW-NW swell will have knee-chest high sets on the morning tide push but even those will be a bit inconsistent. The swell would have improved as we moved through the day but the high tide will mush it out at least through lunchtime and then the winds start to get to it by the afternoon.

The Weather

Friday will be a cooler day for beach temps…the marine layer will stick around longer and the fog, while scattered, will remain pretty thick in the areas it does settle over. Winds will be calm in the morning but then turn onshore out of the SW-W around 10-knot for the afternoon.

The Skinny

Clean but small conditions on tap for Friday…it will be a little more surfable through the morning than the last couple of days but that fog will make it hard to see anything. Once the high tide sets in around lunchtime it will soften up the surf, which is about the same time the winds shift onshore…so the afternoon, which will see slightly bigger surf, will also see the conditions start to fall apart keeping the peppier swell from being all that surfable. Your best bet may be to hunt down a good combo sandbar and bust out the bigger board to pick off a few little peaks before the tide starts to bog things down, just remember that you will be waiting a while for the bigger waves to show (bigger being a relative term of course).
