September 02, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Sunday September 09: A small south-southwest swell will fade into Monday. A combination of choppy short-period surf and a small swell from Miriam will keep the surf up along east facing shores through early this week. This swell will become reinforced by a larger east swell from distant Hurricane Norman Tuesday through midweek. Surf will likely exceed advisory levels Wednesday and potentially near warning levels into the latter part of next 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.
