South: Waist/shoulder high waves are expected today. The best breaks could get up to slightly overhead on the sets.

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 8.43.25 PMThe current south swell slowly subsides through Thursday. Latest models indicate that a storm now brewing east of New Zealand is producing a swell that is expected to reach us Saturday night, peaking on Monday, with surf likely reaching advisory levels for south facing shores.

A mix of northwest and north-northeast swells are fading today. A small reinforcement is expected Thursday/Friday. Possibly another swell on tap for Sunday/Monday.

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.
