It's going to be more noticeable at some sites, I suspect.
The addition of 5 feet of depth does a lot of good in the shallows.
When the tide is declining at a place with a lot of crap in the
water, it has to go out towards deeper waters where you are.
At Monastery beach, with the large pebbles, it won't matter
If the higher depth means that the waves don't break until
closer to shore, you've also gained there. Places
like Huntington Beach have double breaks some of the time;
when that outer break isn't happening, viz should improve.
All that said- the morning is still usually better regardless
of tides because the swell action due to wind is less. I
think it's a bigger factor.
