June 26, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Monday July 02: Short-period wind waves will continue to produce elevated surf along east facing shores the next couple of days, and then trend down late in the week. Long-period south swell will increase on Tuesday, and build through Thursday, with peak surf heights expected to near advisory levels along south facing shores. The south swell will gradually diminish over the weekend.

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.
