A good sized west-northwest is due in late on Valentine’s Day.

Our current southwest swell continues to fade Friday. A small new south-southwest is expected to fill in and peak on Saturday.

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.
