North: Wave heights in the 18 + foot face range are not out of the question today on the sets at deep water breaks even as the swell fades. Well overhead surf will continue for the best breaks with double to triple overhead sets.

West: Surf is ankle/knee high today. Spots catching the wrap will be bigger.

screen-shot-2016-11-11-at-10-58-07-pmOur current north-northwest swell fades into the weekend. Another XL swell is expected for Monday the 14th with a smaller one for the 16th and possibly a better one for the 18th.

Nothing significant is expected out of the SPAC for the foreseeable future.

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.
