A new south swell is filling in Saturday and peaking Sunday around chest high. Something slightly bigger is possible around the 16th. A more solid south-southwest is possible later in the month (around the 19th) from Donna – stay tuned.
A small pulse of northwest is forecast to fill in late Sunday. With a better northwest forecast to build on the 17th, otherwise nothing much expected out of the North Pacific.
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.
