July 04, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Wednesday July 11: A new south swell is expected to build Thursday and peak Friday, with surf heights remaining below advisory levels. Strengthening trade winds will bring an increase in short period waves along east facing shores the next couple of days. Combined with a longer period east swell from distant Hurricane Fabio, surf along east facing shores may reach High Surf Advisory levels tomorrow, potentially continuing through 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.
