Our current south-southwest swell is expected to continue filling in Thursday, peaking Thursday/Friday before fading. Yet another swell is forecast for around the 27th.
A storm that recently developed off the Kamchatka peninsula is sending swell our way. We expect northwest swell to fill in late Thursday into Friday, peaking Friday before fading Saturday.
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.
