The first size of the swell was Thursday, and We were fortunate enough to catch the dawn patrol session (close to dawn:) , South of 2nd light.  It was wait wait wait, until 7:40 ish, and then some chest high glass or semi-glass with plenty of power.

Winds were offshore for awhile, lefts and rights were working.  Four of us in the water only, what a great session!

For Sunday;  the 120 buoy has been pushing 5.5 to 6.5 feet at around 10 seconds now for about 24 hours, ESE winds bringing it in,  so I believe we’ll seem some shoulder high waves down south, and some chest high sets at the Pier and Shephard Park.

If you can catch it, 1 hour after full high tide, and any time for 3 or 4 hours after that, even with the on shore winds at 10 to 15 mph plus,  you’ll catch some long workable left or right shoulders.

We should have waves for the next few days, no offshore winds in sight,  but like I said, catching it high going low, will give you an easy paddle out, and clean shoulders with totally workable walls.

Enjoy the last day of the Easter Surf Fest, lots of good food, great scenery, bonding and all that stuff.

I hope you can catch an Easter Sunrise Service,  our Pastor Greg Le Sieur from Christ Lutheran Church will be at the Shephard Park Sunrise Service starting around 6:45 Am.

Hope to see ya out there!   HAPPY EASTER!
