Swell Summary

Outlook through Sunday April 08: The current northwest swell will lower into the beginning of the week. A small to moderate reinforcing west-northwest swell will be possible by midweek. Choppy, short period, surf will be possible Tuesday through midweek along south facing shores due to increasing southerly winds. Elsewhere along south facing shores, small long period background swells will continue. Another moderate, near advisory level northwest swell is expected to build Friday and peak Saturday. Trade winds should return by next weekend.
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.
