North: Knee to chest high waves are expected today, bigger at the best breaks on the sets.
West: Pretty flat conditions are expected today. Exposures catching the northwest or south-southwest could see ankle to thigh high waves.
South: Ankle to waist high waves are expected today.
A northwest swell is expected for first few days of March, peaking late Monday.
Our current south swell is expected to slowly fade through the weekend. Another round is expected for the first week of March but will be inconsistent.
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.
