Pre-Dawn Peek...
Sideways early - mo offshore later

Pier... Looking waist-high with sum plus size sets. Early South wind breaking up the low tide lines.
Size should imcrease during mid-morning's high tide push. Expect much cleaner conditions by then as winds become mo offshore.

Seeing more chest-high peaks down this way and looking mo cleaner.
