March 02, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Thursday March 08: Surf along east facing shores will gradually ease below advisory levels over the weekend, but remain rough due to strong onshore winds. A small south swell will fill in Friday night into the weekend. A mix of small to moderate north and northwest swells is expected by Sunday, with similar sources continuing next week. Two larger overlapping northerly swells are possible Tuesday through Thursday, which could generate advisory level surf along north 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.
