May 10, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Wednesday May 16: Lingering NNW swells will remain through the weekend with surf heights below advisory levels. Surf along east facing shores will drop off tonight as the trades weaken and increase over the weekend with the return of fresh trades. The south facing shores will see small surf through the weekend with an increase expected 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.
