North-northeast swell holds through the day today. Swell slowly eases Thursday into the weekend.

A new northwest swell is expected to build late Wednesday night, peak Thursday in the middle of the day and hold through Friday morning. A larger west-northwest is expected to fill in that afternoon.

Our current south-southwest swell is expected to peak Wednesday and hold through Thursday before fading Friday and into the weekend. No significant swells are on the horizon after this swell until about the 21st.

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.
