Our current south-southwest is expected to hold through Friday. Yet another swell is forecast for around the 27th.

Our current northwest swell is peaking Friday before easing over the weekend. Only minimal swell expected out of the NPAC for next week at this point but will keep an eye on it.

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.
