June 17, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Saturday June 23: The current S and WNW swells will slowly decline through Monday. Only small S- and N-shore surf is expected Tuesday through the end of next week. Short-period trade wind swell will remain small through the middle of next week. A small long-period E swell, associated with former E Pacific hurricane Bud, may bring a small boost to surf along E facing shores through early 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.
