South: Surf heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today. Spots blocked from the swell will be flat.

No significant swells are expected this week. A series of small south swells is expected to keep background swell going along southern exposures through the middle of the week. We could see a slightly bigger run of swell starting around the 19th of this month.

Trade wind swells will continue to produce short period choppy surf along east facing shores.

Tropical system Fernanda will produce swell for us. Current models show swell has been filling in overnight and build through the week, possibly up to advisory levels. Will keep an eye on it as the size of the swell is highly dependent on the eventual track and intensity of the tropical system.

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.
