Our current west-northwest swell is forecast to hold through Monday and begin easing on Tuesday. Another west-northwest swell is expected to build Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday. Peaking Wednesday into Thursday.

Nothing significant expected out of the South Pacific but activity is starting to pick up a little bit.

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.
