North: Wave heights chest/shoulder high expected today. The best breaks could get up to overhead on the sets. Mix of west-northwest, northwest and north-northeast swells may make for messy mixed up surf.

West: Waist/chest/shoulder high waves expected today. Head high sets are possible. Spots blocked from this swell expected to be between ankle and waist high depending on the exposure.

South: Tummy/shoulder high waves are expected today. The best breaks could get up to head high or more on the sets.

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 10.20.43 PMSurf will remain elevated and just below advisory level along south facing shores through the next couple of days, as the current south swell peaks through early Tuesday, then slowly subsides through Thursday. Latest models indicate that a storm now brewing east of New Zealand is producing a swell that will arrive next weekend, with initial indications that this swell will bring near advisory levels surf for south facing shores.

A new west-northwest swell is expected to build Tuesday/Wednesday. A couple more pulses are likely into early June.

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.
