South: Surf is waist high or less today.

Our current south-southwest swell is down to leftovers.

Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 4.31.34 PMTrade swell will continue for the next few days with onshore conditions for windward sides.

Pre-season north-northwest swell is expected for Saturday.

Models are showing activity in the West Pacific so there is potential for swell energy out of that region in the future.

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.
