Updated: 2018-11-16 15:13:00 Surf: bumpy 2-3ft SE Winds: Fresh SSW Weather: overcast Rating: 3/10

Afternoon report: Conditions are OK for a paddle with the wind hanging in there just south and west enough of east to keep it clean. Semi-protected spots are best and there's a mix of south and east swells to 3ft on the sets.

2018-11-16 06:20:00: bumpy 2-3ft SE, Light and variable SSW, cool and cloudy 3/10

Small bumpy waves in the 2-3ft range from the SE and a light SSW wind. Small peaks around with the protected southern corners possibly the best options but not a whole lot of swell to have many options. A cool and cloudy day.

2018-11-16 05:38:00: bumpy 3ft SSE, Fresh SSW, partly cloudy 3/10

Dawn report: A bit hit and miss out there this morning. We've got some new south swell on the coast from the change yesterday with sets around 3ft, and some small east swell also in the mix. Winds are an issue and most spots are bumpy and wind affected. Not great. Tune back in for the updated photo report around 8am.
