Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 8.47.16 PMOur current northwest swell shifts out of the north-northwest and is expected to slowly trend down in size. An even larger northwest swell is possible for the next weekend, which could bring surf to warning levels.

Our current south-southwest is mainly leftovers today.

Trade swell continues but it’s bumpy and sloppy for most spots.

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.
