    Our current north-northeast swell is expected to fade into the weekend. This swell is at advisory levels for north and east facing shores and it could possibly be extended. A moderate west-northwest and north-northeast are forecast to fill in around Tuesday/Wednesday of next week.

    Our old south swell continues to fade.

    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.
