Surf blog maternity leave...

Aloha all!  Well, as you can tell I've been a little absent as of late.  Life is dealing me with a few new cards and I'm going to be a bit inconsistent for awhile.  For the next month or so I'll be mostly absent with a quick update here or there...but having a baby just takes up so much time!  :-) 

I'll try to get back on track as soon as possible!  Looks like more surf filling in this evening with fun WNW surf for a day or so.  Then a combo of WNW and SW for chest to shoulder high surf for the next 5-7 days.  Weather looks pretty nice with even a day or so of Santa Anas with this next swell.  Water seems to have cooled a degree or two but otherwise it's pretty darn nice for spring surf!

Gotta run but thanks for sticking around and I hope everyone gets to enjoy the ocean every day or at least a few times a week!

Stay wet So Cal!!!

More WNW...and SW combo for the weekend!

Super quickie…super fun surf continues in the chest/shoulder range out of the WNW.  Shorter period groundswell but that means good consistency with a little less punch.  Surf Thurs and Fri then tapering off Sat with new small SW swell moving in early Sun to mix with the WNW swell.  Size in the waist/chest range for this swell. The south holds thru Wed as the WNW backs off.  There looks to be more activity in the southern hemisphere to throw more fun groundswell our way. About a week or so out.  The combo of swells is good news so all beaches get a little love and more surf for everyone!

Weather wise we’re looking at high 60s for Thursday and then a significant warm up for Friday and Saturday with low 80s/high 70s then cooling off again to the high 60s for Easter Sunday and cooler for the start of the week.  We’ll see some springtime winds for Thursday…and then those Santa Ana offshores kick in Fri and Sat before returning to our normal cooler onshores for the end of the weekend and into the work week.  Expect some clouds and then clearing for the weekend with a few more clouds for the first half of the week.  Tides are extreme so they’ll make a difference in the quality of your session.  Water’s nice…mid-60s and it’s April 1st!  That’s no joke!

Gotta run but hope everyone has a Happy Easter!  Enjoy the fun surf, family and friends!  And don’t forget to pick up a piece of garbage after your surf session!

Stay wet So Cal!
