June 02, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Friday June 08: The current southwest swell will keep surf near the summertime average along south facing shores through Saturday. As this swell fades on Sunday, a new south swell will build. This swell will peak Monday and Tuesday with south shore surf near the High Surf Advisory level. Another, similarly sized pulse of south swell is due next Friday. Typical, short-period trade wind swell will affect east facing shores this week. Minimal surf is expected along north facing shores for the next several days, with a tiny increase in northwest swell possible by Wednesday.
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.
