Swell Summary

The current south swell will continue to slowly decline over the next couple of days. A series of small, moderate- period south swells will prevent surf from going flat into early next week.

The easterly swell from Linda will maintain moderate surf along east facing shores through the weekend. Surf heights may approach advisory levels for the eastern half of the island chain late Saturday and Sunday, before reaching the western half Sunday through Sunday night. There is still much uncertainty whether large wind waves will develop as the remnants of Linda approach the island chain due to potential changes in its track.
