Our current northwest swell is expected to slowly fade today with short to mid period north-northwest swell energy lingering through Thursday. A west-northwest is expected to move in midweek.
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.
