Outlook through Thursday February 01: Trades will trend down during the next few days, but an easterly swell will continue to generate east shore surf below advisory level into the weekend. A series of small northwest swells is expected through the week, and a north swell may produce moderate north shore surf Sunday through Tuesday.
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.
