South: Ankle to waist high waves are expected today.

Our current west-northwest swell is trending down.

A northwest boost is expected to build Wednesday night into early Thursday. This should peak late Thursday ease slightly through Friday and then begin to fade through the weekend. A small bump out of the northwest is also expected next weekend.

Screen Shot 2015-04-07 at 7.53.31 PMTradeswell is expected to hold this week. Conditions will be sloppy due to the onshore flow.

A small south-southwest is expected to build Wednesday and hold through the end of the work week. Nothing much on the horizon out of the South Pacific.

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.
