Our current northwest and north-northwest mix is slowly fading. A small west-northwest swell is filling in today as well.

Screen Shot 2014-12-28 at 9.51.02 PMAnother boost of surf energy out of the northwest is expected midweek and through the weekend.

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.
