A northwest swell is expected to build today, peaking late Monday before slowly lowering on Tuesday.

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 8.22.53 PMA south-southeast swell is expected to build on Monday and peak Tuesday.

A west-northwest and a south-southwest swell are expected to move in midweek. Maybe even some short period north-northwest.

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.
