A new northwest is forecast for Wednesday, peaking in the afternoon and easing Thursday and Friday. A reinforcement is expected to build late Thursday into Friday, peaking late Friday and holding through Saturday before easing Sunday. A new swell is possible for the 18th.

A new swell is forecast to fill in out of the southwest around the 14th for the weekend. Another south-southwest is expected for the 19th to 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.
