Swell Summary

Outlook through Tuesday May 29: No significant swells are expected, with surf below advisory levels along all shores. A small, long-period south-southwest swell will slowly build on Wednesday, and then continue into the weekend. A small north-northwest swell arriving Wednesday will diminish on Thursday, with another small northwest swell possible over the weekend. Trade winds will deliver choppy short-period waves to east facing shores.
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.
