Off (HMB Jetty)
It wasn't yesterday. But: I got a few decent rides. Darren said Luke and I should've won an award for synchronized paddling (neither of us got the wave). And the beautiful summerish weather continues.
Surfline: Clean, fun surf on offer as West-WNW (270-310) swell eases through the day. Better exposed breaks continue to offer chest-shoulder-head high+ surf, as top spots pull in some 1-2' overhead sets. A deep 6' high tide topping out just before report time is slowing most of the region down substantially. Look for improving conditions through the morning as the tide backs out. Buoy 46012: (Wave) SWELL: 5.3 ft at 11.4 s W 107 / WIND WAVE: 1.3 ft at 3.8 s NW / WVHT: 5.6 ft / APD: 6.8 s / MWD: 278° (Met) WSPD: 4 kn / GST: 6 kn / WVHT: 5.6 ft / DPD: 11.0 s / ATMP: 56° F / WTMP: 56° F. Tide: 3.5' falling to 2.5'.
