South: Wave heights are knee/waist/chest high today as the southwest swell fades. Northwest wrap will filter into some spots.

Currently a combination of northwest and north-northwest swell are keeping wave heights elevated. Wednesday into early Thursday another solid swell is due in. The best breaks could be four times overhead or more.

Screen Shot 2016-01-18 at 8.27.59 PMTrade swell is expected to remain pretty small at waist/chest high or less.

Our current south-southwest swell is expected to slowly ease today. A reinforcement is expected midweek for southern shores.

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.
