Screen Shot 2016-08-28 at 10.40.49 PMMinimal background southerly energy over the next few days. The SPAC is going quiet for a while with potential for new south-southwest swell around September 5th or so.

The NPAC is looking pretty quiet as well but models are showing activity in the West and East Pacific. Tropical systems Madeline and Lester have formed in the East Pacific and are expected to deliver swell during the second half of next week. Out of the WPAC Lionrock is expected to send west-northwest swell for the second half of next week as well. All swells pending future progress of the storms. Will keep an eye on it.

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.
