“The Indicator” is located in Palos Verdes which is in South Los Angeles County Southern California It is the big wave break on the south end of “Palos Verdes Cove”. Just around the corner, and basically the other side from Lunada Bay! On smaller days it also serves as an indicator for set waves approaching into other breaks in the area, “The Cove”,”North Reef” and “Ski Jump” The Indicator can be ridable on smaller moderate days, but can really get awesome the bigger the better!! ((( audio from surfer ready to go out: ))) “Ah I’m all over that guy, that will do!”) Mostly kind of mushy but very powerful, can develop chunky tube sections for experienced surfers only!! This place is a little remote with those steep cliffs as you can see in this video Lined with a rocky slippery shoreline, and if you were to get hurt out there, you can be on your own for awhile! People have been known to fall off those cliffs breaking bones with no help around for days! Needs a large W WNW winter swell, a rare WSW can be primo! If the swell gets too NW (which is most common), it will be blocked out by the Santa Barbara Channel Islands.In this video if you look far outside past the break you can see it was coming in mostly from a 265-275 degree direction Summer time is mostly flat, to a possible very small wind swell chop, not very ridable. The bottom is semi sharp boulder type, with a few deep holes. Not something you want to scrape or walk on too much, booties help! Water temperature in winter is mostly upper 50’s to some brief mid 50’s Air temperatures in winter are usually very moderate anywhere for highs during fair weather low 60’s to low 70’s, sometimes even a little warmer. During winter rainy periods air temperature are not much below mid- upper 50’s for highs Morning low air temperatures in winter mostly mid- upper 40’s, can briefly but not often get into upper and mid 30’s, but not for long after sunrise. A quick look at: “The Cove”(left side) “North Reef” (right side) “Ski Jump” (center outside dry rock) Now looking north into the South Bay, LAX, and Santa Monica in the far distance.You can see the main walk in path ( right side bluff) Most likely only a few times a winter season for The Indicator to be worth the extra effort to make the long walk in and whitewater clobbering paddle out. The Cove is most consistent and pretty fun on almost any decent winter swell with less of a walk in or climb down the dangerous cliff! On this day “The Cove” was maxed out! “Ski Jump” looked ok with nobody out! (Surfer on cliff audio) He got it, oh ho he got launched! (Surfer on cliff audio) That’s my buddy on the yellow board!
