Swell Summary

Outlook through Thursday November 29: Rough surf will continue along east facing shores due to strong trades. Surf along east facing shores should gradually decrease Friday into early next week as trades weaken. A moderate northwest swell is forecast to begin filling in on Saturday with a larger and longer period northwest reinforcement expected Saturday night and Sunday. Advisory-level surf is expected with this longer period swell by Sunday. The largest swell of the season will be possible Monday with heights potentially exceeding warning levels. This swell is expected to peak Monday and slowly subside through the 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.
