South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today. Best bet is South Point.

No significant swells are expected through much of the week, with surf remaining well below advisory levels on all shores. The models show a long period south swell could arrive Saturday

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.
