South Los Angeles Surf Report & Forecast

Surf Forecast Brief Outlook: THURSDAY: New/primary South-SSE Lowell swell quickly builds in over the morning and tops out in the afternoon for SoCal. Unfortunately, the South Bay will be heavily shadowed on this swell due to the steep angle, resulting in much smaller than most other locations throughout SoCal. Most spots throughout the South Bay will be under waist high all day, while select spots in the northern section of the bay may pull in inconsistent waist high sets in the afternoon. WEATHER/WIND: Light NW'erly wind in the early to mid morning, along with a marine layer. Then moderate westerly wind gradually rises up over the mid to late morning and into the afternoon, as skies become mostly clear/sunny.
