Thursday morning should get another little shot in the arm as we see some new, 310 degree wind swell move down the line and put the best spots in the waist to possible chest high zone.

Friday morning should see one more day of NW wind swell with continued peaks in the waist to chest high range. You’ll still have to dance around the tide, but there should at least be a little something to ride if you can find the right window.
