The current north-northeast swell will remain fairly constant until tonight and then slowly decrease on Thursday until the weekend. As a result, the surf will remain elevated on the north and east facing banks for the remainder of the working week before the surf falls to almost or slightly below normal levels this weekend until the beginning of next week. The surf on the south coast remains small during the working week, with mainly the south sill moving in the background. A larger, sustained south wind is expected to give surfing a boost over the weekend until early next week. A small swell in the northwest may give the surf on the north and west facing banks a boost early next week.
