Screen Shot 2016-07-08 at 9.57.29 PMOur current south-southwest swell is peaking into Saturday morning up to a couple feet overhead for the best breaks. Sunday surf begins a slow downward trend. Another fun swell is expected to build Thursday into Friday and peak over the weekend.

Trade swell will bring surf to northeast exposures but onshore breeze will pick up quickly during the day to chop it up.

Quiet in the North Pacific at this time. A possible swell may be generated in the Eastern Pacific later this weekend or early next week by hurricane Blas. If everything stays on track we could see some energy building around Saturday/Sunday and continuing into the week. Surf potential is also possible from Celia as it continues progressing.

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.
