Our current northwest swell will continue a slow fading trend. A new northwest swell is expected to build late Thursday maintaining wave heights around chest high to a few feet overhead at the best breaks. Swell is expected to peak Friday afternoon and hold steady through Saturday morning double overhead or more at the best breaks.
Trade swell is expected to remain pretty small at waist/chest high or less.
Swell from tropical system Pali is expected to slowly continue fading through the week.
A new south-southwest swell is expected for the weekend with waist/head high waves, peaking Sunday.
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.
