Our current swell continues to fade into the weekend. New west-northwest swell is forecast to fill in late Saturday, rising considerably before dark. This swell will peak Sunday and fade early next week. The same storm could bring more swell for the middle of the week as well with another west-northwest possible for the end of the week as well.

Fun size south-southwest swell is forecast to fill in sometime late in the work week.

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.
