Thu, November 27 - marginal
ankle to knee high with occasional waist high sets.
Summary:

Smaller surf will settle in on Thanksgiving as the last bit of our WNW-NW energy backs down and the smaller S-SW background swell continues to sort of limp in. Look for clean conditions for most areas in the morning but do not expect much size or consistency as the swell fades and the tide fills in.

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

Friday will see wave heights start to come back up as a new round of WNW swell (280-300) fills in. Look for a bit of a slow start for most areas in the morning but the new swell will gain size, consistency, and power as we move into the afternoon. (Note - Forecasted wave heights are for the morning session).
