Not much expected out of the SPAC anytime soon. Maybe some rideable waves around April 9th.

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 9.01.44 PMOur current northwest swell is down to leftovers today. Models are showing another northwest swell moving in late Tuesday, peaking Wednesday and holding steady through Thursday and Friday as it shifts more north-northwest. Another swell is possible around April 10th.

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.
