Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 11.10.27 PMA reinforcing south-southwest swell is expected to continue to fill in Friday before beginning to fade.

Small and relatively short-period northwest swells are forecasted to continue throughout the week, with a slightly larger northwest expected next weekend.

Even though Hurricane Andres has fizzled in the East Pacific, the swell it generated is forecasted to persist into the weekend. The swell is forecast to peak Friday and hold through the weekend before easing through early next week.

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.
