Swell Summary

Outlook through Monday May 07: The current north-northwest swell will slowly drop through the first half of the week. A reinforcement out of the south-southwest is expected by midweek.
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.
