South: Surf heights are expected to be ankle/knee/waist high today or less.

The same storm system which generated a small swell for the weekend is forecast to push some small south-southwest toward us today but under waist high. A stronger storm is expected to bring us a larger south swell late Wednesday into Thursday, hold Friday into Saturday. A small long-period swell is forecast for 9/2 as well.

Nothing is on the radar out of the North Pacific but tropical swell is possible.

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.
