APP ISSUES: FYI – The app is shut down for the time being so just go the mobile site on your phones browser, it does exactly the same thing and you can enlarge the live stream with a pinch. The powers that be won’t let me update the APP and re-submit it because they insist it’s too similar to the mobile site…. F’N Apple store messing with me! Sorry for the interruption in service!
For Saturday morning we’ll see sporadic waist high sets from the aforementioned swell for the most exposed South facing beaches. We’re also due to see some fresh NW wind swell weave its way into the mix throughout the day. The better West facing breaks should see chest high wind peaks around noon and larger waves later in the day. This energy will be out of W/NW from 280-285 degrees with 10-12 second intervals.
