A good sized west-northwest is due in Sunday and expected to peak on Monday before the swell shifts direction and begins to fade Tuesday.

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.
