South: Wave heights are expected to be waist high or less today.

Swells are trending down overall into the weekend. On Sunday a reinforcing northerly swell is forecast to fill in late Saturday, peak Sunday, hold through Monday and slowly begin easing, likely at advisory levels through much of the upcoming work week. Overlapping swells are forecast over the next week.

Small southerly swells will continue with small background swell for south facing shores. A small increase is possible over the weekend.

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.
