South: Wave heights are waist high or less today out of the south-southwest. Many spots will be flat.

Screen Shot 2016-01-29 at 7.55.56 PMOur current northwest swell will continue to gradually fade and has dropped below advisory levels. Another large northwest swell is expected to arrive Sunday night and likely pushing surf heights back into advisory levels for north and west facing shores of most islands through early next week.

Not much expected out of the SPAC the next few days. A possible small swell could fill in February 8th.

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.
