The LA Times is reporting this morning that "the big waves predicted for Southern California beaches failed to materialize Tuesday afternoon." Photographer Jonathan Alcorn, an LAist Featured Photos contributer on Flickr, shot these large waves yesterday in El Segundo at El Porto. These surfers seem to be riding waves in that 7-12 ft. range the Times predicted yesterday morning. Hrmmmmm?

Yes, throughout the region waves were not as high as many hoped to be, especially for those who took the day off from work. Today, the Daily Breeze is reporting that we will have "good to 'epic' surf conditions this afternoon with breakers of 8 to 12 feet" and with the groundswell fading on Thursday.
