Thu, September 18 - rideable
knee to waist high with occasional waist high sets.
Summary:

Thursday we will see the S-SSW swell (190-210) start to slowly back down while mixing with a slightly punchier WNW-NW windswell (290-300). Wave heights will still stay pretty solid through the morning but the standout spots will lose some size and consistency as we move into the later parts of the day.

Fri, September 19 - marginal
knee to waist high with occasional waist high sets.
Summary:

The S-SSW swell (190-205) will continue to slowly drop as we move through Friday. Small shots of WNW-NW windswell and weak S-SW energy will help to keep things dropping too fast, but we can expect smaller, less consistent surf as we move through the day.

Swell/Tide/Wind Details
Weather: Low: 60 High: 75

A chance of drizzle before 11am. Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 75. Light and variable wind becoming south southwest 5 to 10 mph in the afternoon.

Sat, September 20 - marginal
ankle to knee high with occasional waist high sets.
Summary:

Saturday will see a mix of leftover S-SSW energy (180-200), some chunky local NW windswell (290-300) and some background S-SW energy still limping in from other SPAC storms. Overall the size will continue to back down from the work week but the more exposed areas will still see some rideable waves.

Swell/Tide/Wind Details
Weather: Low: 59 High: 75

Partly sunny, with a high near 75. Calm wind becoming south southwest around 5 mph in the afternoon.
