Swell Summary

Outlook through Wednesday April 11: A small, but long period south swell is forecast to arrive early Friday. A reinforcing northwest swell will arrive tonight and persist through Thursday, then gradually subside on Friday. A moderate north-northwest swell arriving Friday night is expected to peak Saturday, then gradually diminish through Sunday. A large northwest swell arriving early Monday may cause surf to reach the High Surf Advisory criteria along north and west facing shores early next week.
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.
