May 27, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Saturday June 02: Surf is expected to remain below the High Surf Advisory criteria along all shores into the middle of next week. A series of swells from the Tasman Sea will keep surf near the summertime average along south facing shores through Memorial Day. Surf will build to above-average heights along south facing shores by mid-week. Rough surf along east facing shores will subside early next week as trade winds weaken, then increase again by mid-week. The current small northwest swell will maintain tiny surf along north and west facing shores into 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.
