West: Pretty flat conditions are expected today. Exposures catching the west-northwest or south-southwest could see knee to thigh high waves.

South: Knee to waist high waves are expected today with the best breaks a bit bigger on the sets.

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 5.06.29 PMA west-northwest swell is expected to build further on Wednesday and peak in the morning with waves possibly in the overhead range at the best spots on the sets. Swell will begin to slowly fade out Wednesday afternoon.

Possible storm development off of Japan may bring a swell for first few days of March. Will keep an eye on it.

A new south swell is expected to build in further Wednesday. Swell is expected to peak on Wednesday as well.

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.
