All shores should remain well below advisory level today. No significant south swells are expected through mid-month. Possibly a swell expected around the 16th, will keep an eye on the models.

Moderate trade swell for the east side.

In the short term, nothing expected out of the north either. Some models are indicating a possible swell around the 19th out of the northwest. Will keep an eye on it.

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.
