Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 9.43.48 PMOur current long-period swell from the south-southwest is gradually fading through the rest of the week. A storm in the South Pacific is expected to send us another round of fun south-southwest swell starting Sunday.

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.
