June 23, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Friday June 29: Surf along east facing shores will remain elevated for most of the period as local and upstream trade winds deliver short period wind waves. A small, relatively short-period southeast swell will arrive late this weekend, and persist through next week. A long-period south swell will arrive Tuesday and gradually increase into Thursday, with peak surf heights expected to produce advisory-level surf along south 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.
