July 05, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Wednesday July 11: A new south swell will build Thursday, peak Friday below the south shore advisory level, then slowly decline during the weekend. Strengthening trade winds will produce rough, short period surf near the east shore advisory level on Thursday and Friday. A long period swell from distant East Pacific Hurricane Fabio will likely push east shore surf above the advisory level during the weekend. East shore surf will decline early next week as the short and long period east swells decrease.
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.
