Water Temperature now.
I'm from Brazil, I'm traveling to SoCal this Sunday.
I checked a few sites, and it seems the water is pretty warm the last few weeks. I lived in SoCal, and the water was always freezing, so I'm not sure I believe when these sites say the water is like 67 degrees.
can anyone confirm how's the water temperature lately between LA County and San Diego County? Will I be able to surf in my trunks?!
Select "Surface Maps" "Near shore Ocean Temperature" and suit up accordingly. 60-70's I'd be wearing a full 3-2 or at least a spring suit.
Thanks man. still I would like a report from someone who was actually in the water... I'm familiar with SoCal's average water temp, so if someone who's from there tell me that it's really a lot warmer than usual, that would make me a slightly happier person :)
Man that sh!t be cold on the west side
Tell me about it... I'm from Brazil, and I usually wear a full 3/2 during winter. After 6 months in SoCal (I surfed SoCal during the winter, BTW), I came back to Brazil in the middle of winter...
It was a cold, windy and rainy day... I put my trunks on and went to check the water... felt like a bathtub.
I was there about a week ago, I board shorted. But to be safe you would be comfortable in a spring.
The water temp dropped after the South Swell we had tapered off. It's definitely the end of summer. If I recall, you're coming to North County. The water temp has been in the mid-60's, despite what the sites say. Totaly trunkable with air temps in the 70's-80's; but I've been sportin' trunks since late April - early May. I might switch over to the spring suit in the next couple of weeks if doesn't warm up (lol and if wishes were fishes I'd spend less time trying to catch waves), usually I try to hold off until October. Not much goin' on in the way of waves though. Looks like we're in for a good flat spell after that little taste of OH this last weekend. It's probably gonna be 1-3', maybe 2-3' for a hot minute.
Got it. But it seems there is a small swell arriving for this weekend, and something bigger (chest to head high) for the middle of the month. Trestles usually picks anything up... and even Huntington. For HB I just need to surf before the sun rises, so I can avoid the late morning/afternoon winds.
Even small, I think it should be fun. This is my late Honeymoon anyway, so the focus isn't on surfing.
However I do intend to be in the water a lot... I need the exercise, I will do an actual surf trip to Peru (Punta Hermosa) in early October, so I need to be in shape... long paddles await.
NO MORE BRZZOS!!!! Just kidding, bring a wetly and don't drop in on everyone
This has got to be the best, worst surf report i've read in along time. It's for No SDCo. Gave me a chuckle today at work, which was great. I've been "putting out fires" for the last 40 odd hours trying to fix a system that should have never been monkeyed with. Only had about 3-4 hours of sleep, definitely no surfin. I guess I didn't miss much today, although people told me yesterday was real nice. Haven't been in the water since a second sesh around noon on Sun. At least the water warmed back up since last weekend. I still haven't had to put on more than shorts.
Crappy surf, this is*Jonathan*with the report for Tuesday afternoon*
knee to thigh high
VERY POOR CONDITIONS
Afternoon REGIONAL Overview:*Minimal mix of NW windswell and Southern Hemi groundswells today. Expect surf to be mainly under waist high for the region, weak/crumbly waves mostly around 1-2'. Surface conditions have some texture/bump to it from the onshore wind. Overall, surf is poor, stay at work/school.*
This morning's dawn patrol:*Soft weak sections with no energy.*
Weather:*Marine layer over the coast with WSW-SW wind around 7-11kts at the moment.
