A new south-southwest swell is forecast to build in and peak late Thursday into Friday.
Quiet in the North Pacific at this time.
East swell from Blas continues but begins to fade today. Hurricane Celia will generate more swell. For now, east swell is expected to build Friday into Saturday and peak Sunday. Darby is also likely to generate swell for us. Will keep an eye on the development and bring you details as they become clearer.
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.
