Thu, September 18 - pretty fun
chest to head high with occasional overhead 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 - playful
waist to shoulder high with occasional head 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.

Sat, September 20 - rideable
waist to shoulder high with occasional shoulder 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.
