Screen Shot 2015-06-16 at 6.16.44 PMOur current south-southwest swell is expected to slowly fade to leftovers by Wednesday. A fun swell is expected to reach us out of the South Pacific Thursday/Friday peaking over the weekend with a reinforcement right on its heels.

Out of the North Pacific conditions will be pretty flat with no significant swells on the horizon.

Trade swell it expected to pick up midweek through the end of the work week in the waist/chest high range.

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.
