July 09, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Monday July 16: The east swell has been declining, and trade winds have weakened. Thus, surf heights along east facing shores have been dropping. However, trades will restrengthen Tuesday through the rest of the week, which will again marginally boost east shore surf. Surf will gradually lower along south facing shores through the day, with a moderate boost due in around late Tuesday. No other significant swells are expected.
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.
