    A small west-northwest is expected to peak this weekend. It starts out a little more northwest before swinging west-northwest Sunday.

    A small south-southwest swell is forecasted for the weekend with another out of the same direction due to fill in the middle of next week. A reinforcement is also possible for next weekend.

    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.
