Swell Summary

Outlook through Monday October 15: A reinforcing northwest swell is expected to fill in by Tuesday and hold through midweek, which will continue to generate small to moderate surf along north and west facing shores. Former Typhoon Kong- rey is currently tracking across the pacific and is expected to bring another small west-northwest swell later in the week. Small south and southwest swells will provide small to moderate surf throughout the week. A more notable southwest swell is expected around midweek. Surf will gradually rise along east facing shores through midweek due to a long-period easterly swell from Hurricane Sergio in the eastern Pacific.
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.
