A storm that just developed in the northwest Pacific could bring a solid swell around the 13th. Will keep an eye on it.

Mix of energy out of the south will linger.  We may get some energy headed our way around the 13th thanks to a storm in the Tasman Sea.

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.
