Outlook through Wednesday December 05: The current large northwest swell will continue to subside over the next few days. Surf should drop below advisory thresholds tonight. A series of moderate northwest swells are expected through the weekend. A large northwest swell may arrive Tuesday night. Choppy surf will remain along east facing shores today due to the breezy trade winds. Surf should drop tomorrow as the trades weaken. Surf will remain small along south facing shores.
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.
