June 30, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Saturday July 07: Small southeast and southwest swells will keep surf along south facing shores near the summer average through Sunday. Looking ahead to the first week of July, the active trend for south facing shores will continue due to systems passing south and east of New Zealand. The first swell is expected to begin filling in late Monday into Tuesday followed by another south swell later in the week. Surf along east facing shores will be on the rise later next week as trade winds strengthen. Surf may reach the High Surf Advisory criteria for east facing shores starting late Wednesday or Thursday.
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.
