March 26, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Sunday April 01: No significant swells are expected through Friday. The current northeast swell will continue to slowly subside over the next several days. A small short-period northwest swell will persist through at least Thursday. Small south and southwest swells are also expected to continue through the next several days. Long term guidance suggests a possible near advisory northwest swell building over the islands next 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.
