Swell Summary

Outlook through Wednesday April 25: Rough moderate surf will persist along east facing shores through the weekend, with an increase to near the advisory level due early next week. A small northwest swell will build late Thursday, peak Friday, then slowly decline through the weekend. A moderate reinforcing northwest swell will peak on Monday then decline through mid week. Small pulses of south swell will continue through early next week.
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.
