Nothing significant is on the radar for southerly exposures at this time.

A couple of small swells are possible this week. A new, modest, northwest swell is forecast for Thursday / Friday. We could see some other swells developing from some storms near Japan. Will keep an eye on it.

Short period trade swell is expected to be our main source of surf for today.

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.
