Our current shadowed west-northwest swell fades out further Friday. Short-period northwest shifting swell brings a reinforcement late Friday, holding Saturday before fading out Sunday.
Our current south swell is expected to slowly fade through the weekend. Another round is expected for the first week of March but will be inconsistent.
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.
