Swell Summary

Surf along north and west facing shores of the smaller islands will build through the day as a small, medium period, northwest swell arrives. Surf will remain up through midweek as a small, long-period, west-northwest swell arrives Wednesday. A downward trend is expected Thursday through Friday. Rough surf will continue along east facing shores through midweek, then potentially lower slightly by the end of the week. Surf along south facing shores will ease through the first half of the week as the south swell moves out.
