Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 9.01.34 PMNot much expected out of the SPAC anytime soon. Maybe some rideable waves around April 9th.

Our current northwest swell is down to leftovers today. Models are showing another northwest swell moving in Wednesday and holding steady through Thursday. Friday the swell should start to ease and shift. Another swell is possible around April 10th.

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.
