Surf’s Up! (At least for Wednesday and Thursday)

Chile is sending its regards with a large south swell rising up from its waters!  The swell began arriving yesterday and will be hitting in full today at noon until tomorrow at about 4pm, as it begins to recede.

High tides today (Wednesday) are at 5:52AM and 6:26PM
High tides tomorrow (Thursday) are at 8:00AM and 7:47PM

Estimates are that the waves will be about 6ft in normal waters with big waves at 8ft, and the Wedge will do its magic.  We all know what that means.

Waves both today and tomorrow will lose their shapes between 9am and 3pm, but will regain after that.  If conditions look good, we will be livestreaming video of the Wedge on Facebook at 6pm.

Whether you will be on shore or in the water– enjoy your sets!!

UPDATE Here is the livestream archive:
