ummm. depends which part of Southern California you are talking about. san diego will be better than LA area, but you aren't going there. summer generally does not bring in huge swells because we rarely get storms unless it is an el nino year. also, we do have a heat issue in LA/Orange counties which creates wind onshore after 10 am on days that are over 85 degrees inland (most days in late june-early sept). there will be consistent small surf throughout the season. it is rarely flat. that being said, expect 2-4 ft avg in the south and another foot or so in the north. have fun
