HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR SOUTH FACING SHORES

Our weather team will bring you any urgent weather alerts or updates as they occur. Check our breaking news section for the latest.

Swell Summary

Outlook through Sunday July 29: The current long-period south swell will gradually lower from Monday night through Tuesday. Small south swells will maintain background surf along south facing shores from mid-week into next weekend. The trade winds will continue to produce moderate short-period choppy surf along east facing shores this 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.
