Screen Shot 2014-12-26 at 11.15.34 PMA new northwest is forecasted for Saturday into Sunday building to a few feet overhead to possibly double overhead at the best breaks open to the swell. A reinforcement is on tap for Monday with a larger swell expected midweek.

Super small trace amounts of swell expected out of the SPAC. Not much to get excited about.

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.
