Screen Shot 2015-09-18 at 9.12.14 PMOur current SSW swell will hold through Saturday. Another long period SSW swell is expected Saturday, and is forecast to peak Sunday afternoon into Monday morning.

Trade winds will continue to generate short-period choppy surf at moderate levels along east facing shores through the weekend. Other than that, there is 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.
