Transition day, a lot smaller than it's been. Not going to last long, as tomorrow there should already be another XL swell. Below is the Surfline forecast showing a remarkable 10ft 20s. I personally doubt it will get that big, we'll see. Enjoy the smaller waves today, Hookipa should be around head to head and a half.
