Outlook through Thursday June 14: A new south swell will slowly build tonight and Friday. South shore surf will peak Friday afternoon into Saturday near the high surf advisory level. A reinforcing, similarly sized south swell will arrive on Sunday and gradually lower on Monday. Near summer time average surf will continue along the east facing shores this week. A pair of tiny northwest swells will continue through mid week.

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.
