By Friday morning that swell should start to show with long interval lines from a 295-300 degree angle. This one will fill in through the day and be good for shoulder to head high sets for the most exposed West facing beaches.
With another long period swell on tap I’m not anticipating the shape to be any better for the beach breaks so try and find a reasonable point or reef.
