Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 9.13.26 PMOur current northwest swell is expected to continue to fade through Monday. A shadowed west-northwest is expected to start building Tuesday and peak on Wednesday morning possibly up to overhead at the best breaks on the sets.

Possible storm development off of Japan may bring a swell for first few days of March. Will keep an eye on it.

Only small SSW for now but a fun sized swell is possible the middle of next week.

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.
