Another moderate size west northwest swell is expected to fill on Saturday, peak late Saturday and Saturday night, then lower gradually on Sunday.

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.
