A new south-southwest swell continues to build this morning and will bump the surf back up. This swell is forecast to fade around the 23rd but keep surf in the “fun” range through the weekend.
A northwest swell is fading on Tuesday.
Trade swell is up as the winds have increased.
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.
