Another round of swell continues to fill in out of the west-northwest today with an XL northwest swell on its heels for Saturday night, peaking early Sunday morning before easing through the day Sunday and Monday.
Trade swell is expected to remain pretty small through the weekend.
Our current south-southwest lingers through the weekend with wave heights topping out in the knee high range.
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.
