WNW Swell and SSW Swell Combo

New SSW swell trends up through middle/late week, modest NW swell continues.

The recent storm system passes by mostly to the north of us on Tuesday; bringing a slight chance for showers followed by breezy onshore W winds in the afternoon. Light+ onshore S/SW winds prevail in the early morning (strongest through OC/SD). Winds trend onshore from the SW/W by the late morning.

Wednesday, April 17th: 3-4'+ at Southern Hemi standouts in OC, otherwise 2-3'. Light S/SE wind in AM hours, WSW wind in PM. Modest to fun-zone new SSW swell (200-180) will build further Wednesday as mid-period NW swell-mix holds. That provides surf around waist high at the well exposed breaks (Ventura, North LA, select parts of South Bay, parts of OC and SD), while standouts get up to chest high on sets. Southern Hemi focal points will pull in shoulder high sets during favorable tides.

Winds slowly improve for many spots with a light S/SE wind in the morning. SB/Ven/LA should be fairly clean. Winds trend SW-West through the day, topping out at light+/moderate levels.

Netflix just announce their new Malibu Rescue movie and series. From the behind the scenes photos we have come across, doesn't look like much was actually filmed in Malibu. It looks like it's trying to be a Baywatch for pre-teens.

Here's their press release:

In the upcoming movie Malibu Rescue, Ricardo Hurtado (School of Rock) will star as Tyler, a handsome know-it-all with a fierce competitive streak and Breanna Yde ( School of Rock ) will star as Gina, a tough and self-assured athlete. The live-action comedy follows a ragtag group of aspiring junior lifeguards from The Valley as they compete against the snobby local kids for bragging rights and the ultimate tower at Malibu beach. Kids and teens alike will root for these heroic and funny underdogs and parents will connect with the positive life lessons for their children. The movie is set to launch May 13th on Netflix.

Following the movie, Malibu Rescue: The Series will follow the high spirited and scrappy group of novice junior lifeguards after they have staked their claim on Malibu Beach and the wild adventures that fill their days in the sun. The 8-episode series will launch June 3rd on Netflix.

Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas (Raven's Home, R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour) will serve as writers and executive producers on the movie and series. Scott McAboy (Rufus 2, Legends of the Hidden Temple) will also serve as executive producer alongside Savage Steve Holland ( Better Off Dead and One Crazy Summer ) who will executive produce and direct.

The action-packed nature of the series, in particular, will shock and excite viewers with things like para-sailing accidents, boat chases and potential drownings, Holland says. “We’re single-camera guys, and we like to make little movies,” he says. “In this case, we wanted to have a lot of character development but add an element of excitement and action. We have an action unit on each episode, so every episode you’re like, ‘Holy crap, this is a kids show and they did that!’—which is our dream.”

McAboy and Holland pitched the project as either a series or film two years ago, making Malibu Rescue one of the first original kids/family productions Netflix signed on for. At first, the streamer was unsure if it wanted to finance the productions because of how ambitious the scripts were. However, a spokesperson for the streaming giant confirmed that Netflix decided to move forward with production on both the film and series after seeing how well Holland and McAboy handled stunts, explosions and high-stakes action in productions like Nickelodeon’s Big Time Movie (which Holland directed and McAboy co-executive produced).

Peter Ruiz and his Venice Pier Project have hooked up with Heal The Bay to host a beach clean up at the Venice Pier on Sunday from 9AM till Noon. There will be snacks and refreshments. You can CLICK HERE for more info.

If you're at the Venice Pier when this is going on, head over to the clean up tent and spend at least a few minutes giving them a hand. Show Peter and his crew that the work they do trying to keep the pier clean is appreciated. And it's his birthday on Sunday, wish him a Happy Birthday. If you don't know who he is, he's the dude in the bright yellow VPP safety vest that's always smiling.
