FRIDAY: A fun sized combo of S Hemi swells is in the water for the end of this week. The primary SSW swell (205-190) peaks late Thursday into Friday as secondary SW swell (230-215) fills in just behind it. This blend should be good for chest-head high surf Thursday and Friday, as focal points will see sets go a couple feet overhead.
WEATHER/WIND: Diurnal pattern for the next few days: light/variable to light+ offshore flow in the mornings, before a light to moderate sea-breeze develops in the afternoon hours. Watch for winds to ease some by the evening hours, offering a potential window of opportunity before dark. Note – local thunderstorms in the area potentially sees winds swirl around a bit – Always keep an eye on the Hi Res Winds.
