The Surf & Weather Forecast for

Southern California

July 13, 2018



SSW (190-205) mix peaks Friday and Saturday before baking off steadily through the first half of next week when we’re going to see a little lull.  Next round of swell is going to be some smaller SW (225-235) due next Wednesday from action in the Tasman Sea.  Read more for details.

Surfwise the peak of the SSW swell mix is going to bring waist to head high waves to standouts through Saturday,  for most average spots though we’re expecting waist to chest high surf.

The swell mix should ease Sunday through early next week… Then.. there just isn’t much to talk about through mid-next week.  There’s a small SW (225-235) a really wide one at that expected to trickle in from a system in the Tasman Sea recently.  It could be enough to bring some knee to waist high+ waves to standouts but not much more than that.  Good things could be to come though.

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

Friday the 13th surf builds a little more and could start to peak with waist to head high surf at standouts

Saturday the 14th waist to head high surf at the swell mix peaks

Sunday the 15th southern hemi mix eases, dropping wave heights into the knee to chest high range

Monday the 16th leftovers mean knee to waist high+ surf.

Tuesday the 17th southerly swell mix continues to back off a little more.

Wednesday the 18th Small SW trickles in, could mean some knee to waist high waves at standouts

Thursday the 19th inconsistent SW continues to bring knee to waist high surf to stnadouts.

Tropical Overview

Post Fabio cool down… not much to see here.


North Pacific Swell Forecast

North Pacific Swell Forecast is looking quieter for the time being

South Pacific Swell Forecast

Long-range forecast looks promising.  We’re expecting a series of SSW-SW (200-220) that should start arriving around the 21st.

The first system has already come around New Zealand, and is going to send a fun sized pulse of SW (210-220) that will build through the end of next weekend and likely peak early the following week.  Thing is, that’s likely not going to be the highlight.

A bigger reinforcing system is going to generate a better angled and closer fetch, that could generate 30-35 foot seas.  The swell it produces is likely to steal the show, with more consistent and larger surf.  It’s still a little too early to call, but it could mean that he surf continues to build through the 25th/26th, peaking with wave heights possibly in the chest to overhead+ high range.  Stay tuned for more details next week.
