West: Wave heights of waist/head high are expected. Spots that don’t catch the southwest will ankle to knee high from the wrap. Better early in the day.

South: Wave heights waist/head high are expected. Standout spots could get a bit bigger on the sets. Better and bigger early in the day.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 11.06.24 PMOur current south-southwest swell is expected to hold through early Thursday before beginning to ease. Storm activity near New Zealand is expected to bring us fun swells this weekend and early next week.

Out of the North Pacific a very small bump of shadowed northwest swell is expected to build Thursday afternoon and peak on Friday morning at about knee/thigh high. The swell should fade out Saturday.

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.
