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

Friday will see the energy from Marie (now 180-200) continue to back down while some smaller pulses from the SW (200-220) move up from the South Pacific. NW windswell will start to show in the mix as well but will mostly be lost in the stronger S-SW energy.

Sat, August 30 - playful
knee to shoulder high with occasional shoulder high sets.
Summary:

We will see a mix of SW swell (200-220), NW windswell (290-300) and short-period W-WSW tropical leftovers (250-260) that hang in the background. Plan on the inconsistent SW swell and the tropical leftovers to do much of the work, however the NW windswell may add a little more workable shape to the combo spots.
