Swell Summary

Outlook through Monday November 26: The next moderate northwest swell will fill in late today, peak tonight into Tuesday, then gradually lower into Wednesday. An uptick in short period choppy surf can be expected along east facing shores by Wednesday due to strengthening trade winds. Small, mainly background south swells are expected through the upcoming 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.
