March 19, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Sunday March 25: Small north and tiny background south swells will continue over the next couple of days, with surf remaining well below advisory levels along all shores through Tuesday. A larger and longer-period northeast swell will arrive Wednesday and peak Wednesday night into Thursday. Surf along north and east facing shores are forecast to reach advisory level surf with this swell, and possibly warning level heights for east facing shores at the peak.
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.
