Swell Summary

Outlook through Tuesday August 14: A series of small south swells are expected through Wednesday. Another small south swell is expected Friday and Saturday. A small north swell is expected to arrive late today, peak tonight and Wednesday, then lower gradually Thursday and Friday. Short-period, choppy surf will continue to impact east facing shores. Swells from Hurricane Hector are expected to impact south and east facing shores during the middle of the week. All other shores are expected to remain below advisory level through this 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.
