Northeast trade swell for eastern exposures is forecast to build over Friday and into the weekend up to about head high, possibly overhead by Sunday. Looking ahead, we expect a northwest swell around the 15th and some trade swell late next week.

A new southwest swell is forecast to build for southern exposures late Saturday into Sunday, peak late Sunday and hold through Monday / Tuesday.

Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
