Thursday night into Friday morning another swell out of the north-northwest is expected to build and peak late Friday.

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.
