Outlook through Sunday April 15: A large northwest swell is expected to arrive late tonight or early Monday, peak near warning levels Monday night, then slowly ease through midweek. Another northwest swell could bring advisory level surf around Thursday. Surf along east facing shores will rise this week as trades return. Another large northwest swell is possible late Friday into the weekend. Surf along south facing shores will remain small through the forecast period.

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.
