A fun south-southwest should hold through the weekend. This swell will begin to ease Sunday into early next week. Another south-southwest is forecast from the 19th to the 21st with yet another swell expected around the 27th.
Our current northwest swell peaked overnight and holds Saturday before easing Sunday into Monday. Another small northwest is forecast to fill in Tuesday.
