South: Surf is knee/waist high or less today and building to about head high by the end of the day.

Screen Shot 2016-07-06 at 5.16.12 PMSmall southerly swells are showing through Thursday but fading. Another round of swell will start to build later today and peak Friday into Saturday morning up to a couple feet overhead for the best breaks.

Trade swell will bring surf to northeast exposures but onshore breeze will pick up quickly during the day to chop it up.

Quiet in the North Pacific at this time. A possible swell may be generated in the Eastern Pacific later this weekend or early next week. If everything stays on track we could see some energy building around the 9th and 10th.

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.
