Screen Shot 2016-08-23 at 8.27.42 PMOur current south-southwest swell is down to leftovers with small background southwest and southeast energy filtering in. The SPAC is going quiet for a while with potential for new south-southwest swell around September 5th or so.

The NPAC is looking pretty quiet as well but models are showing potential activity in the West and East Pacific so there is possible swell energy out of that region in the future… perhaps the first week of September.

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.
