Other information: Happy Thanksgiving - enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, and forget about surfing. There are no rideable waves out there today, and it looks doubtful through the weekend.

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.

The surf report was updated on Thursday November 27 by Jim Radley.
