Other information: Another SUP day, and more of the same through Saturday. At least these surf conditions won't interfere with completing your Christmas shopping and other preparations for the holidays.

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 December 18 by Jim Radley.
