Shorter period northwest swell is filling in today. A longer-period late season northwest swell is expected to fill in late Sunday into May 8th.
Our current south-southwest swell continues to slowly ease into the end of the work week. The second half of the week, things will slow down.
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.
