Swell Summary

Outlook through Monday September 10: A series of small background south and southwest swells will be rolling in throughout the week that will keep the surf from becoming flat. An above normal swell generated by Hurricane Norman is forecast to reach the island’s near-shore waters on Wednesday, bumping up the surf along the east facing shores in the process. A high surf advisory/warning is likely for all east facing shores exposed to this swell. Waters will also turn very rough and choppy. This scenario is dependent on the track and intensity of Hurricane Norman. Thus, the surf outlook is subject to change.
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.
