July 02, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Monday July 09: A series of small southerly swells can be expected through the week and into the weekend. Strengthening trade winds will cause a gradual increase in short period choppy surf along east facing shores. This combined with a longer period east swell from distant Tropical Cyclone Fabio in the Eastern Pacific may cause surf to reach High Surf Advisory levels on east facing shores later this week and into the 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.
