The South Bay is know for it’s block long closeouts.  Once or twice a year a swell comes along and produces legitimate waves.  This day saw one of those swells. Surfers include: Conor Beatty, Bryce Lowe-White, Matt Hinson, Chris Wells, Chris Frohoff, Andy Prunauer, Easton Jones, Kyle Brown and others.  We hope this is a sign of a great El Nino winter!

Video produced by Brad Jacobson for Civic Couch.

Everything from calm playful waves to crazy wind battered waves are featured in our new episode featuring last weeks swell in the South Bay.

Civic Couch produced a short visual story about a swell that made it’s way into the South Bay region of Los Angeles for a few days in late October, 2015. The waves did not pan out as expected but it still provided South Bay surfers with some fun waist to head high surf. Surfers include: Noah Collins, Wil Reid, Dane and Kelly Zaun, Marc Jiminez, Cheyne Magnusson and others.
