May 25, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Thursday May 31: Surf will remain below advisory levels along all shores through at least the middle of next week. A series of swells from the Tasman Sea will keep surf along south facing shores near the summertime average. Rough surf along east facing shores will subside early next week as trade winds weaken.
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.
