November 17, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Saturday November 24: The current north-northwest swell will lower later today through Sunday. Another small to moderate sized northwest swell is expected to fill in Monday, peak Monday night and early Tuesday, then lower gradually into Wednesday. Small, mainly background south swells are expected through the weekend and next week. An uptick in short period choppy surf can be expected along east facing shores this weekend and early next week due to strong trades.
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.
