Northwest swell is expected to hold through this morning before easing later in the day. Another round of swell is expected out of the west-northwest Friday and Saturday with another northwest swell on its heels for Sunday and Monday.
Trade swell is expected to remain pretty small through the week.
Our current south-southwest lingers through the week with wave heights topping out in the knee high range, possibly bigger at standouts on the sets.
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.
