January 29, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Sunday February 04: Surf will remain below advisory levels along all shores through Wednesday. A pair of large northwest swells are expected from Wednesday night through Sunday, producing max surf heights on Thursday and Saturday that will approach warning levels along north and west facing shores. Otherwise, the current north swell will see a slight reinforcement Monday night and Tuesday, then gradually diminish through Thursday. Small swells from the west-northwest and east will also persist for the next few days.
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.
