July 25, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Wednesday August 01: Rough, choppy trade wind swell and small short-period southeast and northeast swells will generate modest surf along east facing shores. Otherwise, only small background swells are expected through early next week.
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.
