New west-northwest swell is expected to build Tuesday into Wednesday. Peaking with well overhead sets late Tuesday into early Wednesday. The swell fades late Wednesday through the end of the week.
Trade swell drops slightly today with waist/chest high waves for the best exposures. Conditions will be pretty blown out.
