According to Surfline: Old combo of NW and SSW swells drops going into the weekend, as a fresh, shorter period NW swell takes over.

Saturday, February 27th: 2-3’+ waves off peaking NW swell, 4’+ for top spots. Light winds in the morning.
A reinforcing pulse of shorter period NW swell tops out, putting well exposed spots in waist-stomach high surf. Deep mid morning high tide (~6′) favors shorebreak sandbars, while most other spots are swampy then. Mid day tide works best for many areas, before the ocean ebbs down to a drained, -1′ mid afternoon low. Light/variable to light offshore winds much of the morning, shift to light+/locally moderate afternoon onshores for textured+ to ruffled conditions. The sea breeze looks to ease by the evening.

Sunday, February 28th: 2-3′ surf from fading NW swell. Moderate to breezy morning offshores.
The shorter-period NW swell will be steadily winding down. Morning sees the most size. Surf gets smaller as the day goes on. Widespread ENE winds in the morning, moderate for most areas and looking stiff around northern LA, for offshore conditions. Those winds due to ease into mid day, then turn to onshores along most of the coast during the afternoon. Deep mid morning high tide swamps out lots of spots, while favoring shorebreak sandbars. Negative low tide in the later afternoon drains the smaller waves.
Here are the projected peak wind gusts from late Saturday night into Sunday morning for the Los Angeles area due to the gusty Santa Ana winds.

According to Surfline: Fun little combo of NW, SSW swells through Fri. Refresh of NW swell mix for the weekend.

Friday, February 26th: 2-3′ surf — 3’+ sets at top spots. Light morning winds.
A few fun peaks to track down but many breaks are slow, as selective SSW swell and small NW swell ease, while the tide tops out at a deep high around 6′ mid morning. Widespread knee-waist high surf continues, best shorebreak sandbars and high tide spots up to about chest high early. Fresh NW swell mix is on the rise for the afternoon, as the ebbing tide bottoms out at a draining -1′ mid afternoon low. Variable to light offshore wind early trends light onshore through the middle of the day. Onshore flow bumps up a notch further through the afternoon for added bump/texture later in the day.

Saturday, February 27th: 3-4′ waves off peaking NW swell. Light winds in the morning.
A reinforcing pulse of shorter period NW swell tops out, putting well exposed spots in consistent waist to chest high surf, while the better breaks in Ventura and the South Bay hit shoulder high+ and south San Diego standouts see head high sets. Deep mid morning high tide (~6′) favors shorebreak sandbars, while most other spots are swampy then. Mid day tide works best for many areas, before the ocean ebbs down to a drained, -1′ mid afternoon low. Light/variable to light offshore winds much of the morning, shift to mainly light+ afternoon onshores for textured+ conditions to a little bump.



Mike, aka German in Venice, vlogs about daily life in Venice Beach, and the nearby communities.

"Today, I went to Venice Beach to show you an update on the homeless encampment from the video I took five months ago. You can decide for yourself if it got worse or better. I also include many movie locations, I matchup pictures from the actual movie that was shot in Venice Beach Beach."
