Swell Summary

Outlook through Sunday August 05: An uptick of trade winds is expected bring an increase in wind swell Tuesday through Thursday along east facing shores. Small southeast and south swells will maintain small background surf along south facing shores through next week. Otherwise, no 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.
