Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 4.31.08 PMModels are showing our current northwest swell is expected to shift more northerly on Friday. A larger, longer period northwest swell is expected to build Saturday night into Sunday, peaking late Sunday before beginning to ease on Monday.

Not much expected out of the SPAC anytime soon. Minimal southerly swell is expected to trickle in over the next few days. Swell is possible around April 18th or so.

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.
