Our current south-southwest swell is expected to continue through Tuesday before an easing trend takes hold Wednesday. New swell out of the southern hemisphere is expected Thursday into Friday.

Tropical swell is now expected for the second half of this week generated by hurricane Olaf. Warning level surf could occur on east shores. Will keep an eye on it.

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.
