Screen Shot 2015-09-15 at 10.22.00 PMOur current fun south-southwest has topped out and will be trending down today. A couple reinforcing swells are likely to build in later this week and into the weekend and even into early next week.

A small northwest is expected to hold through today. 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.
