Other information: Small waves and Fall weather are forecast through the weekend. With ocean temperatures dropping, it's time to get out the wetsuits for whenever we next get any rideable waves.

Surfcam image updates: These typically occur every 2-3 seconds, depending on such factors as network traffic and web server load. However, once every week or so, there are no image updates for a period of 30 minutes, the result of a combination of network congestion, file transfer protocol limitations, and web server timeout settings. So, if the image is not updating, check back in 30 minutes.
