Our current south swell is forecast to continue slowly trending down into Tuesday and then holding pretty steady through the end of the work week. A small southwest swell is also forecast to mix in.

A new west-northwest is forecast to start filing in Thursday and Friday. This energy is forecast to shift out of the northwest for the weekend.

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.
