Wed, April 16 - rideable
waist to shoulder high with occasional shoulder high sets.
Summary:

A lumpy mix of overlapping S-SW swells (180-210) and some still building WNW-NW windswell will add some size as we move into Wednesday. Looks like our winds may not be all that clean but there is at least a chance for some more size and even a few rare protected pockets.

Thu, April 17 - rideable
knee to waist high with occasional waist high sets.
Summary:

Slowly fading S-SSW energy (180-210) will mix with some new long-period SSW-SW swell (200-220) and some smaller NW energy (290-300) on Thursday. Look for the well-exposed S facing beaches to have the most consistent surf though the combo breaks will have enough size to ride as well.

Swell/Tide/Wind Details
Weather: Low: 52 High: 65

Patchy fog before 11am. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with a high near 65. Calm wind becoming south around 5 mph in the afternoon.

Fri, April 18 - rideable
knee to waist high with occasional chest high sets.
Summary:

Southern Hemi swells (180-220) will continue to linger-hold as we move into Friday. Look for some increasing but still relatively small WNW-NW energy (285-300) to hang in the background. S facing spots will continue to see the bigger sizes while the combo spots continue to have rideable shape-size as well.

Patchy Fog
67
Sat, April 19 - rideable
knee to waist high with occasional chest high sets.
Summary:

New S swell (180-190) builds in on Saturday while mixing with some new WNW-NW energy, mostly local windswell (285-300), and a touch of modest NW background swell. Looks like winds will be a little shifty in the morning, enough to add some texture to the more exposed spots.

Swell/Tide/Wind Details

Patchy fog before 11am. Otherwise, partly sunny, with a high near 67.

Summary:

S swell continues to build in on Sunday (180-190) while mixing with some smaller background S-SW energy and WNW-NW swell (285-300) helping to flesh out the gaps in the bigger S swell. Expect to see the biggest surf at the directly exposed S facing beaches.
