North: Many spots are expected to be overhead to double overhead today depending on the amount of exposure the spot is getting.

West: Ankle/knee high surf is expected. A mix of northwest swells will be up to overhead or more for exposed breaks.

South: Wave heights are thigh high or less today.

Today we have a mix of south-southwest swells, one is fading and one is building. Tuesday swell size will hold before trending down. Nothing much expected out of the SPAC anytime soon.

Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 8.35.28 PMOld north swell is expected to fade today with the energy dropping further through the afternoon and Tuesday. A small west-southwest swell is expected Wednesday and Thursday with a small north-northwest possible for Friday into the weekend.

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.
