Screen Shot 2016-04-17 at 7.44.51 PMOur current northwest swell is expected to slowly fade Monday. Mid week another round of swell is forecast, peaking late Wednesday.

Not much expected out of the SPAC anytime soon. Minimal southerly swells will trickle in over the next few days. The next swell is expected to build in Thursday and peak Friday.

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.
