Swell Summary

Outlook through Sunday June 24: The current south swell will decline through Monday, with only small back ground swells expected through the week. A small longer period southwest swell is expected for the upcoming weekend. The current west- northwest swell will gradually diminish Monday and Tuesday. No other significant swells are expected.
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.
