Screen Shot 2016-05-29 at 7.36.25 PMOld southwest swell continues to fade Monday. Some energy is expected to filter in Monday and peak Tuesday around chest high or so. Another southwest swell is expected to fill in Wednesday.

A northwest swell is expected to top out early Monday before slowly fading. The best spots could get up to chest or even shoulder/head high on the sets.

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.
