Swell Summary

Outlook through Tuesday November 13: The current, small northwest swell will decline late today, then will be reinforced by a slightly larger northwest swell Wednesday into Friday. During the weekend and into next Monday, a short-period north swell may push north shore surf to around the November average. Near average surf along east facing shores will gradually subside during the next few days as trade winds drop. A small south swell is possible during the weekend.
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.
