Moderate NW winds (9mph) have put a significant bump and chunk on the water. Whitecaps here and there. Surf is all crossed up and in the chest to head high range. There are 4 guys out giving it a go on the sandbars in front of the grass area. Short, dumpy rides with an unhappy ending. Just past a 5.5 high tide. A -0.2 low tide at 1pm.

Sunny skies, mild temps and lots of surf. Same W swell combo giving us shoulder to head high stuff; going + on the sets. Somewhat walled up due to swell direction but if you know the reef contours you can whirl in to a big fat corner and get a decent ride. Set waves are tightly packed so don't take the first one. Just coming off a 5.1 high tide, reaching a 0.2 low at 12:30pm. Glassy sea surface conditions with no wind. About 6 people out.

Medium period west swell spinning off waist to chest high surf. Somewhat walled up but there are some corners about. Glassy sea surface conditions. Freshening SW breeze. Very unhealthy water quality; 11 on a scale of 1-10. Clearing skies with rainbows. Medium tide on the way out to a 0.6 low at noon. Next high will be at 6:30pm (3.4 feet). About 10 people out.

A rainbow smudge with a mix of swells in the water. Main muscle is from a large 12 second WNW swell with a smaller, shorter period S swell providing reinforcement. Surf is in the 7-10 foot zone and all over the place. Larger sets. Sea surface is smooth and winds are very light. Medium dropping tide going to a 1.6 low at 10am then back up to a 2.8 high at 4pm. No one out.
