July 23, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Monday July 30: Small south swells will maintain background surf along south facing shores from Wednesday into next weekend. The locally breezy 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.
