Short-period northwest swell has moved in and is expected to hold and peak Saturday before fading out Sunday.

Screen Shot 2015-02-27 at 9.08.17 PMA northwest swell is expected for first few days of March, peaking late Monday.

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.
