Morning Report

Surf is running waist to occasional chest high this morning. Winds are Southeast at the time of this report but have been changing with every thunderstorm that comes through.

Bob Hall has about 30-40 people out and the Volcom contest.
North Side Packery had a small wave away from the jetty but water has covered beach making access difficult.

This should be the start of our surf for the next few days as the wave models show building seas.
