Not as big as hoped for today and didn't really peel across the bay until the tide was quite far out. Was it the SW wind? Was it the fact that it was a big out-going tide? Was the swell angle not quite as good as a few days ago? Or was the swell forecast too big? By uploading an image, the hindcast info may help me figure that out.
