    Today's rating - Pretty Good

    SE swell 6ft @ 12 seconds. NW winds 6 knots. Swell is up, clean lines with lots of closeouts on the beach breaks, S corners and right hand points will be the pick and a few of the high tide reefs later in the morning. Winds should remain from the W so we should see a good day of surfing.
