Nothing significant is expected until about June 9th or so when a couple of overlapping swells are forecast. In the meantime, just trace amounts of energy not amounting to much at all.
Quiet in the North Pacific at this time with nothing of note generating swell energy for the foreseeable future.
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.
