South: Surf heights are expected to be chest/head high today. The best breaks could get up to overhead.

Our current south swell is forecast to continue to fill in today above advisory levels for souther facing shores. Surf is expected to slowly trend down on Saturday.

Out of the north Pacific, Tropical Cyclone Sanvu near Japan and a gale-force low developing near the eastern Aleutians are forecast to bring swells if they develop as the models are currently showing. If so, a small west-northwest swell and a larger north-northwest swell are possible next week.

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.
