Swell Summary

Outlook through Monday February 12: The current west-northwest swell will continue to gradually subside through early Thursday. A new advisory level northwest swell will arrive on north and west facing shores from Thursday night into Friday. This swell will quickly subside into 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.
