October 26, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Friday November 02: A moderate north-northwest swell is expected to fill in late Saturday, resulting in near advisory-level surf for north facing shores Saturday night through Sunday. Near advisory-level surf is possible again late Tuesday through Wednesday of next week as a long-period northwest swell arrives. Surf along south facing shores will slowly lower through the weekend into early 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.
