Swell Summary

Outlook through Wednesday February 14: A new large northwest swell is expected to arrive by Thursday night. This swell will peak on Friday then lower gradually Friday night through Saturday night. A moderate size northwest swell is expected to fill in Saturday night and Sunday. A larger reinforcing northwest swell is expected late Sunday and Sunday night. This swell is expected to peak on Monday then lower gradually Tuesday and Wednesday. A moderate size north northwest swell is expected during the Tuesday through Wednesday time frame.
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.
