Thu, July 31 - marginal
ankle to knee high with occasional knee high sets.
Summary:

More SW swell (210-220) will help to prop up wave heights on Thursday while select SE facing beaches see the last of the tropical SE swell (160-170). Look for some NW windswell (290-300) hanging in the background at the best combo spots. Overall wave heights will be about the same but plan on the standout spots to shift around to the more SW direction.

Fri, August 1 - marginal
ankle to waist high with occasional waist high sets.
Summary:

Friday will see the SW swell (205-220) continue to wriggle into the exposed spots while the local windswell (290-300) tries to creep up as well. Look for the surf to be on the soft-inconsistent side for most of the beaches but the standout combo spots will see some slightly punchier and more consistent set waves.
