Our current small southwest, south-southeast mix continues to fade. A new south-southwest swell is expected to build slowly on Friday and peak over the weekend with occasional shoulder high sets.
A new small northwest is expected to build Friday but not expected to get bigger than waist high. No significant swells on the horizon.
Small easterly swell from former Blanca is expected to. Swell is expected to hold through Friday and into the weekend up to about waist high.
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.
