    South: Ankle to waist high waves are expected today.

    Our current north-northwest swell is expected to slowly fade out Tuesday.

    A solid northwest swell is expected to build Wednesday, peak Thursday morning and slowly fade out Friday into the weekend. Some spots are expected to be double overhead or more at the peak.

    Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 8.29.48 PMOur current small south-southwest is slowly fading out. Small reinforcement keeps wave heights steady Wednesday and Thursday. Otherwise, nothing much on the horizon out of the South Pacific.

    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.
