Our current south-southwest swell continues to hold Wednesday and Thursday before beginning to ease late Thursday. Still, it will keep surf in the “fun” range through the weekend.
Our current northwest swell is fading over the next couple of days, dropping down to just leftovers by Thursday. Nothing much is expected out of the North Pacific at this time.
Trade swell will be decreasing as winds decrease.
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.
