Our current west-northwest has peaked and will ease on Friday. A stronger west-northwest is forecast for the weekend. This new energy will fade out early next week.
Nothing significant expected out of the South Pacific.
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.
