West: Surf heights are expected to be chest/head high waves. The best breaks could get up to slightly overhead on the sets.

South: Surf heights are expected to be chest/head high waves. The best breaks could get up to slightly overhead on the sets.

A short-period northwest swell is expected to bring choppy conditions associated with the stronger winds behind the front with a series of small, longer-period northwest swells expected for next week.

A series of long-period south swells are forecast into next week. A High Surf Advisory is posted for these areas through early Saturday morning and could be extended. A reinforcing south swell is forecast to fill in Monday and Tuesday, and keep surf borderline for advisory conditions.

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.
