By Friday morning we will see some more bruising swell fill in for the dawn patrol. We’re looking at OH to possibly DOH sets from a 285-295 degree angle with powerful 16-18 second intervals.

Once again the best West facing breaks will get the Lion’s Share of swell but there will be enough of a Westerly angle to sprinkle swell into most breaks. The reefs and points will be the best bet for shape and order. West facing beaches will likely be a bit unruly so take a good long look before you paddle out.
