Swell Summary

Outlook through Thursday September 20: Swell from Olivia will continue to rapidly decline today, and trade wind swell will return along east facing shores. Breezy trade winds will continue to produce elevated surf throughout the weekend. A small northwest swell is expected to peak today. A small south swell is likely over the weekend, with another small northwest swell expected late in the weekend and early next 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.
