Swell Summary

Outlook through Wednesday June 20: A small south swell will give a bump to south shore surf Thursday, with a slightly larger swell arriving Friday evening and lingering into the weekend. The second swell will likely top out just below advisory levels Friday night into Saturday. A pair of moderate northwest and west-northwest swells will build Thursday afternoon into Friday, then linger through the weekend. Typical short period trade wind swell can be expected along east facing shores before trending down late in the week through the weekend as the trades weaken. East Pacific tropical cyclones will also send a series of background long period east swells toward the islands through the weekend.
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.
