knee to waist high with occasional shoulder high sets.
Summary:

Thursday will see cleaner conditions and slowly fading surf heights as our mix of WNW-NW energy (290-300) and S-SW swells (180-200) slowly start to back down. Look for fun, rideable surf at most of the better combo spots, but plan on smaller, less consistent sets as we move through the day.

Summary:

Friday starts off smaller, with a touch of light wind texture creeping into many areas.
