Outlook through Wednesday February 21: Small to moderate northwest swells will continue into the weekend. A short period east swell will gradually build over the next several days.
Surf heights are forecast heights of the face, or front, of waves. The surf forecast is based on the significant wave height, the average height of the one third largest waves, at the locations of the largest breakers. Some waves may be more than twice as high as the significant wave height. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near any surf zone.
