Tomorrow may even have a little more punch size for size.  The size, well yeah that will be maybe a foot smaller.  But Saturday till noon ought to be some solid waist high sets still on the sets.  Winds more offshore, probably in the 4 to 8 mph NW to W back to NW, North, etc. 🙂 range.  Possibly offshore till noon or so. Low tide is around 6 am, so that’s also working for us.  Have an awesome Saturday !  The reason why it could have more punch to it, is the Fetch of this wind swell, which may have actually been out 800-1000 miles which is maybe why it looked like a weak groundswell today with the lines instead of peaks, but anyhow, the fetch moves North and gets a second on the swell period, stronger and thicker on the rim of the moving period chart, as it pushes closer to shore Saturday, then it did today.
