May 30, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Tuesday June 05: A new SW swell will build tonight and reach above-average heights tomorrow through Thursday. After a trend downward Friday and Saturday, a slightly larger above-average south swell is expected to build on Sunday, possibly peaking close to advisory levels early next week. Surf along east facing shores will rise to above average heights into the upcoming weekend. Only small surf is expected along north facing shores.
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.
