    North: Chest to head high waves are expected today. The best breaks could see heights a couple of feet overhead on the sets early in the day.

    West: Northerly exposures could see waist to head high waves. Elsewhere, ankle to knee high surf expected today.

    South: Spots open to the south-southwest swell are expected to get waist to chest high waves. Elsewhere, ankle to knee high surf expected today.

    Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 9.55.50 PMOur current swell is expected to continue to fade through Wednesday. Wednesday a small reinforcement is expected, maintaining waist to chest high surf. If the storm develops as models are indicating, we could see a west-northwest swell late this week with a reinforcement over the weekend.

    The current south-southwest swell is expected to slowly fade over the next couple of days. A small new south-southwest is expected midweek. A fun sized swell is possible the middle of next week.

    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.
