December 02, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Sunday December 09: The current northwest swell is expected to fade over the next few days. A reinforcing long period northwest swell will keep small surf through Monday. A much larger northwest swell will build on Tuesday, peak Tuesday night and Wednesday and fade through the remainder of the work week. This swell will likely generate warning level surf heights along exposed north and west facing shores. Breezy trades will return this week and will result in increasing surf along the east facing shores. By the end of the week, stronger trades may bring advisory level surf for east facing shores. Surf is expected to remain minimal along south facing shores through the period.
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.
