Outlook through Monday April 16: The northwest swell will slowly ease Tuesday night through Wednesday. Another smaller northwest swell will bring sub advisory level surf on Thursday. Another large northwest swell is expected to come in on Friday and Saturday. Surf along east facing shores will rise this week and become choppy as trades return. Surf along south facing shores will remain small through Saturday, with a moderate bump up in southerly swell possible Sunday and Monday.
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.
