South: Spots catching the south-southwest swell are forecast to be knee/waist high with belly/chest high sets today.

Northeast trade swell for eastern exposures is forecast to build over Friday and into the weekend up to about head high, possibly overhead by Sunday. We don’t expect much out of the north Pacific other than a small swell possibly around the 12th and some trade swell late next week.

A small swell is expected to hold into Wednesday / Thursday up to waist high with chest high sets at the best exposures.

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.
