For Thursday morning that swell will continue to throw some energy our way, as yet anther little ground swell rolls into town. This should be good for more shoulder to head high plus waves with larger, overhead sets at the top spots. *** Huge high tides remain in play for the morning!

For Saturday morning the conditions should improve but the surf will continue to back down through the day. The better West facing breaks should see waist to hopefully chest high sets in the AM. There’s a little tide push early which could help out for the dawn patrol.
