South: Wave heights are expected to be waist/chest high today out of the west-northwest and knee/waist high today out of the south-southwest with occasional chest high sets.

Old west-northwest swell gets a boost from northwest reinforcement today but fading thereafter. A solid west-northwest is expected for the end of the week, building Friday, peaking that night and holding through Saturday morning before slowly easing late Saturday into Sunday.

Modest south-southwest swell continues Wednesday with a new south-southwest filling in Thursday.

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.
