March 08, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Wednesday March 14: An advisory-level swell from the north-northeast will continue into the weekend, producing high surf along east facing shores for most of the week. A northwest swell will hold tonight, with surf remaining below the advisory level on west facing shores. A small south swell is expected to continue today. A new moderate to large north swell may affect north facing shores late in the weekend and early next week, and may bring at least advisory level surf, possibly warning level.
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.
