Our current northerly swell is below advisory levels and is beginning to fade Friday.
Small along east shores because of the light winds but picking up as we get into the weekend and trade winds build back in.
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.
