May 03, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Wednesday May 09: A north swell will slowly decrease through the rest of the week. A south swell will decrease to background levels by the weekend. A late season north swell is expected to arrive late Sunday or early Monday. This will increase surf along the north facing shores but heights should remain below the advisory level. Surf along east facing shores will remain small this week, but may become rough early next week as significant trades build in over and upwind of the state.
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.
