Our south-southwest swell is down to traces and pretty much flat through the weekend. Another small south-southwest swell is lining up to fill in on the 10th for the 11th through 13th.

Our current north-northeast swell is expected to hold through the weekend. Another, slightly larger north-northeast swell is forecast to arrive early next week and peak Tuesday night.

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.
