For Wednesday morning we’ll dip into the waist high range for most spots while the top deep water West facing breaks continue to produce some larger set waves on occasion, (especially through the early morning tide push).

In conjunction with that swell, we’ll see a minor pulse out of the SW pitch in for some waist high + sets from 195-200 degree angle and 14 second intervals.
