June 28, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Thursday July 05: Surf along east facing shores will trend down beginning Friday as the trades relax. Surf along south facing shores will peak today near the advisory level, then gradually ease into the upcoming weekend. Two small long period southerly swells, expected over the weekend and early next week, will keep the surf along south facing shores near the summer average each day.
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.
