    North: Surf heights are expected to be ankle/waist high or less today.

    West: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. Spots blocked from the swell will be flat.

    South: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. Spots blocked from the swell will be flat.

    No significant swells are expected through the rest of this week. A series of minimal south swells is expected to keep background swell going along southern exposures. We could see a slightly bigger run of swell starting around the 19th of this month.

    Small trade wind swells will continue to produce small choppy surf along east facing shores.

    There’s a good chance Tropical system Fernanda will produce swell for us. Current models show swell filling in Tuesday night or Wednesday, possibly at advisory levels. Will keep an eye on it as the size of the swell is highly dependent on the eventual track and intensity of the tropical system.

    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.
