South: Surf heights are expected to be waist/shoulder high today, some spots will be head high on the sets.

A new reinforcing south-southwest swell peaked near advisory levels Friday and will keep surf on south shores elevated through the weekend below advisory levels. A couple more swells are expected for June 29th and July 3rd. Will keep an eye on it.

Tides have been running about a half a foot above predicted levels. These elevated tide levels will increase the risk for minor coastal flooding when combined with the above average south swell. See the latest Special Weather Statement above for details.

Nothing much is expected out of the North Pacific at this time.

Trade swell will be decreasing as winds decrease.

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.
