North: Well overhead waves are expected today, bigger at the best breaks on the sets reaching double overhead or more at some spots early in the day.
West: Pretty flat conditions are expected today. Exposures catching the swell could see waist to chest high waves, maybe bigger on the sets early in the day.
South: Ankle 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 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.
