Screen Shot 2015-05-01 at 7.13.43 PMA boost out of the south-southeast is expected to peak over the weekend. Next week we could see some fun activity building in around May 5th.

Not a lot expected out of the North Pacific for the next few days. A couple of small swells could move in around May 5th and again on the 8th.

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.
