    North: Surf heights are expected to be waist/head high today and easing.

    West: Surf heights are expected to be waist high today with the best breaks catching some chest high sets.

    South: Surf heights are expected to be waist high today with the best breaks catching some chest high sets.

    Our current late season northwest swell eases Wednesday with a small reinforcement filling in. After that, possibly some fun swell at the end of next week.

    A slight south-southwest pulse is forecast to fill in with the best spots maybe getting up to waist high. Thursday through Sunday we could see some little pulses. Something slightly bigger is possible around the 16th. A more solid south-southwest is possible later in the month (around the 19th) from Donna – stay tuned.

    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.
