Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 10.29.50 PMOur current south-southwest swell is forecast to peak Friday and hold through the weekend.

Quiet in the North Pacific at this time.

East swell from tropical system Celia will generate more swell. East swell is expected to build Friday into Saturday, peak late Saturday and hold through Sunday. Darby is also likely to generate swell for us the second half of next week around the 21st. Will keep an eye on the development and bring you details as they become clearer.

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.
