South: Surf is pretty flat today.

A series of northerly pulses are forecast for this week. A new northwest is forecast to begin building late Monday, peaking Tuesday before easing. A new northwest is forecast for Wednesday with a reinforcement also possible Friday.

Our current south-southwest will keep knee/thigh high waves at the best exposures Monday and easing Tuesday. A new swell could fill in out of the southwest around the 14th.

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.
