Our current northwest swell generated by a storm near the Aleutians is expected to peak Thursday and slowly fade Friday through the weekend.
Small leftovers expected for southerly exposures. Nothing much through the weekend. There is potential for a new south-southwest swell to build in Monday.
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.
