My apologies for the gap in updates but I’m down in Ecuador until next Thursday. Regular updates will begin again on Saturday.
For Wednesday morning we’ll see a combo of 2 pretty feeble swells out of the NW. Swell 1 will have 14 second intervals from a 300 degree angle and swell 2 will will have 8-10 second intervals from a steep 310 degrees. All in all we’re not looking at much more than waist high + surf for the best West facing breaks.

This is important for ensuring both a safe and enjoyable experience.

One day, you could be riding four-footers all day and the next, you might be facing a glasslike surface with nary a ripple.
