January 24, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Tuesday January 30: Although trades will trend down and become light through the second half of the week, the easterly swell will likely hold and continue to generate near advisory level surf for east facing shores through Friday. A mix of small north and west-northwest swells will be possible Thursday through the weekend, which will support small surf for north and west 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.
