Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 9.19.11 PMA storm in the South Pacific has generated another round of fun south-southwest swell for the islands. The swell is expected to top out Tuesday before beginning to fade on Wednesday. A couple reinforcing swells are likely to build in later this week and into the weekend.

A small northwest is expected to build and peak Tuesday. Otherwise, nothing of note out of the NPAC.

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.
