Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 8.20.36 PMA small northwest swell is expected to begin to fill in today with a small west-northwest possible for the weekend.

Our current small south-southeast is expected to continue to slowly taper off over the next few days. A small south-southwest swell is possible for the weekend.

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.
