South: Surf is waist/shoulder high today, with head high waves at the best breaks on the sets.

Screen Shot 2016-04-21 at 8.43.29 PMOur current northwest swell is expected to slowly fade over the weekend. A possible swell could move in Wednesday the 27th and another on the 29th. Will keep an eye on it.

A new south-southwest peaks Friday up to at least waist/shoulder high. Another smaller south-southwest is expected for the weekend but not expected to increase wave heights over what the fading swell will already be providing.

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.
