A moderate south swell that could reach advisory levels of 8 feet on Wednesday is expected to bring waves of 3-to-5-feet with larger sets this afternoon.

Small surf of 1-to-3-feet is expected for most of the day, but surf will increase in size and consistency later in the afternoon, the National Weather Service said.

The surf will build overnight and should peak on Wednesday.

The surf is from a gale south of French Polynesia last week. Another storm near New Zealand may bring more surf to south shores this weekend.
