A good surf at high tide with a cross-off SE wind that made it a bit choppy a long way out, where the set waves were breaking. Clean inside. Mostly about head-high with set waves a couple of feet overhead. Some gnarly looking hollow waves breaking to the west end of the bay. The take-off looked too steep for my ability (or lack of ability).
