Swell Summary

Outlook through Wednesday February 07: A large northwest swell arriving Wednesday night and Thursday will bring advisory level surf to exposed shores. A larger swell from the west-northwest is expected Friday night with surf nearing, or exceeding warning levels. South facing shores will have choppy, short period surf through Friday.
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.
