screen-shot-2016-10-10-at-6-11-58-pmMinimal south-southwest energy this week. Nothing significant is expected, just a small southwest swell for around the 13th.

Our current northwest swell is gradually weakening with another northwest swell is expected to build late Tuesday into Wednesday. Size should be a notch smaller than the peak of our current swell. Additional northwest pulses are also on the radar later in the week and through the weekend.

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.
