March 01, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Wednesday March 07: Rough surf will continue through Friday along east facing shores before gradually easing over the weekend. A mix of small to moderate north and northwest swells is expected by Sunday, with similar sources continuing next week. A larger northerly swell is possible Tuesday through Wednesday, which could generate near advisory level surf along north facing shores. A small to moderate south swell will be late Friday into 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.
