Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 9.49.19 PMPossible storm development off of Japan may bring a swell for first few days of March. Will keep an eye on it.

A new south swell is expected to build Tuesday with knee to waist high waves in the forecast. Swell is expected to peak on Wednesday.

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.
