North: Head high waves to a couple of feet overhead are expected today, bigger at the best breaks on the sets.
West: Pretty flat conditions are expected today. Exposures catching the northwest could see waist to shoulder high waves.
South: Ankle to waist high waves are expected today. The best breaks could see chest high waves on the sets.
Our current northwest swell is expected to slowly fade today with short to mid period north-northwest swell energy lingering through Thursday. A west-northwest is expected to move in Wednesday and peak Thursday.
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.
