South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today, up to waist high at the best breaks.

Our current west-northwest swell continues to fade today. A fun size swell is forecast for the 5th / 6th if the models ring true.

Nothing significant expected out of the South Pacific. WE could see some rideable surf on the 7th and possibly again on the 12th.

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.
