    West: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high this morning and chest/shoulder high by the afternoon. Spots that are shadowed will be flat.

    South: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high this morning and chest/shoulder high by the afternoon.

    Trade swell is hanging around waist/shoulder high on Saturday. Sunday winds begin to ease a bit and so will the swell. Keep in mind the conditions will be pretty messy with onshore winds.

    We expect to see a boost out of the south for the weekend with another boost of swell energy expected around the 15th. Another swell is expected around the 17th.

    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.
