Northeast trade swell for eastern exposures is forecast to build into the weekend up to about head high, possibly overhead by Sunday. We expect a northwest swell to fill in Sunday into Monday and some trade swell late next week.
A new southwest swell is forecast to build for southern exposures late Saturday into Sunday, peak late Sunday around waist/chest high and hold through Monday / Tuesday.
