South: Surf is ankle/knee high today.

Our current west-northwest swell is expected to continue fading. Shorter period north-northwest swell will bump up Friday and Saturday with unfavorable wind conditions. A larger west-northwest is lining up for the 19th through the 23rd, peaking Monday before easing some Tuesday. A reinforcement is also possible Wednesday and Thursday.

Small south-southwest continues to fade. We may see some better swell near the end of the month.

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.
