Our current west-northwest swell continues to slowly fade over the next couple of days.

Screen Shot 2015-03-30 at 7.49.47 PMA small north-northwest swell is expected midweek, with a small west-northwest possible for the weekend.

Our current small south-southeast will continue to slowly taper off over the next few days. A small south-southwest swell is possible for the weekend but still pending storm development.

Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
