February 11, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Saturday February 17: A moderate size northwest swell is expected to fill in tonight and Sunday. A slightly larger, reinforcing northwest swell is expected on Monday with a second reinforcement expected Tuesday into Wednesday boosting surf along north and west facing shores to near advisory level. Breezy, but decreasing trade winds will continue to produce short period choppy surf along east facing shores through the weekend.
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.
