Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 5.57.53 PMOur Tasman swell is expected to hold pretty steady through Saturday before fading Sunday. Another slightly larger swell is expected to fill in late on Saturday / through the day Sunday, which should keep wave heights steady. That swell is expected to peak early next week.

A new northwest swell is expected to fill in Saturday and peak Sunday into Monday.

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.
