North: Overhead waves are expected today, bigger at the best breaks on the sets as northerly swell peaks.

West: Pretty flat conditions are expected today. Exposures catching the swell could see waist to chest high waves, maybe bigger on the sets.

South: Knee to thigh high waves are expected today. The best breaks could see waist high waves on the sets. Otherwise, shores that don’t catch the swells will be flat.

A developing storm north of the state is expected to peak on Monday before slowly fading through the middle of the week.

Screen Shot 2015-03-08 at 8.19.12 PMA storm that just developed in the northwest Pacific could bring a solid swell around the 13th. Will keep an eye on it.

Mix of energy out of the south will linger.  We may get some energy headed our way around the 13th thanks to a storm in the Tasman Sea.

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.
