South: Ankle to waist high waves are expected today. The best breaks could see chest high waves on the sets.

Our current northwest swell is expected to slowly fade today with short to mid period north-northwest swell energy lingering through Thursday. A west-northwest is expected to move in Wednesday and peak Thursday.

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 10.08.56 PMA south-southeast and south-southwest mix of swells is expected over the next couple of days. South shores are expected to go quiet from Friday through the first part 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.
