A new small southwest will build further and peak Tuesday in the waist high zone and then begin to fade. A new swell is also due in next weekend.

Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 9.33.22 PMOur current northwest swell is forecasted to drop out Tuesday. Another small northwest is expected later this week.

Even though Hurricane Andres has fizzled in the East Pacific, the swell it generated is still expected to continue to impact the islands but continues to ease through early this 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.
