The Surf & Weather Forecast for

Southern California

June 18, 2018



The current mix of S/SSW (180-215) will peak Monday before easing through midweek.  Most of the week is looking to be on the smaller side with some playful overlapping SSW due Friday through the upcoming weekend.  Read more for details.

Get the live Southern California Buoy Forecast graph here -

Surfwise peaking mix of SSW and small S from Bud should mean surf running  are going to mean surf running waist to head high at standouts likely through Monday.

Tuesday the surf starts to ease into the knee to chest high range.  The trend continues down through midweek, bottoming out Wednesday.  Conditions are looking light in the mornings, although there could be some southerly texture on the surface in a few areas. Afternoons look more onshore, with easing winds in the evenings.  Temperatures inland are supposed to get pretty warm this week, so with school out it might be a bit of a chore to find yourself an empty lineup (if those still exist).

Thursday we’re expecting some new small SSW (195-205) to arrive, maybe bringing a few extra knee to chest high waves to southerly exposures.  Friday a slightly better pulse arrives, with longer periods in the 18 to 19 second range.  That swell builds to a peak next Saturday, with surf in the waist to head high range at standouts

Here’s what to expect on a day-to-day basis this week:

Monday the 18th southern hemi peaks. Surf should be running waist to head high+ at standout southerly exposures

Tuesday the 19th southern hemi should hold pretty some size at least through the morning, easeing into the knee to chest high range late.

Wednesday the 20th SSW swell mix backs off into the knee to waist high+ range.

Thursday the 21st a little extra SSW in the water will help bring back knee to chest high surf at standouts

Friday the 22nd longer-period SSW builds.  Wave heights could start to push the waist to chest high+ range

Saturday the 23rd SSW mix peaks with waist to head high surf

Sunday the 24th surf lingers in the knee to chest high+ range

Tropical Overview

Tropics are looking pretty quiet right now.


North Pacific Swell Forecast

North Pacific Swell Forecast is looking quieter for the time being

South Pacific Swell Forecast

Things are looking a little slow at the moment, but there are a couple interesting situations on the models later this week.  First is a mid latitude system SE of Easter Island that has a NNW track… That means its moving away from Chile and towards California.

It’s not ideal, but that track should help send some S-SSE (170-180) swell towards Socal for around the 25th.  Behind that the models are showing some smaller SW for the end of the month, but nothing really that exciting.

The longer-range models (around the end of the week) show a better scenario where we could be seeing some playful-overlapping SSW (195-205) pulses for the end of the month as well, but its still a bit too early to call.  I’ll keep an eye on things and if I see anything exciting I’ll let you know.  Stay tuned

Next long-range forecast expected for later in the week.
