Wed, October 22 - playful
knee to waist high with occasional shoulder high sets.
Summary:

Look for a slow fade in our surf on Wednesday. The WNW-NW energy (285-300), while still good sized, will be backing down and the smaller background S-SW swells will be trailing off as well. Look for most of the size in the morning, however we will still have issues with the higher tide then as well.

Thu, October 23 - rideable
knee to waist high with occasional chest high sets.
Summary:

Thursday will see the mix of WNW-NW energy (290-300) back down a bit further while being replaced by smaller and softer NW windswell (290-300). There will be some small S-SW background energy (180-220) rounding out the swell mix but expect it to only produce some minor lines for the well exposed spots.

Fri, October 24 - rideable
knee to waist high with occasional chest high sets.
Summary:

Friday starts off a little slow but building WNW-NW swell (285-300) will fill in and add more size to the afternoon. Smaller S-SW energy (180-220) will also be on the rise in the background and will help to add some better shape and more consistency to the combo spots. Biggest waves arrive near sundown.

Sat, October 25 - rideable
knee to waist high with occasional chest high sets.
Summary:

Wave heights will stabilize for most areas on Saturday as the WNW-NW swell (285-300) holds steady. The better combo breaks will see a little more size as the SSW-SW energy (200-220) and the new S swell (180-190) slowly gain some traction.
