Screen Shot 2015-02-25 at 4.30.25 PMOur current west-northwest is slowly fading through the end of the work week. Short-period northwest shifting swell brings a reinforcement Friday afternoon, holding through Saturday and fading Sunday.

A northwest swell is expected for first few days of March. Will keep an eye on it.

Our current south swell is expected to slowly fade through the weekend. Another round is expected for the first week of March.

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.
