Swell Summary

Outlook through Saturday February 03: An east swell will persist through early next week. A north swell will produce moderate north shore through Tuesday. A series of small northwest swells is expected through early next week. A large northwest swell expected to arrive Thursday could produce surf well above the advisory level through next Saturday.
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.
