Swell Summary

Outlook through Friday May 04: A larger north-northwest swell is expected this weekend and into early next week, with advisory-level surf likely along north and west facing shores Sunday and Monday. This swell will gradually diminish through the middle of next week. Small southerly swells will persist with a peak in surf expected 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.
