October 25, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Thursday November 01: Advisory-level surf is expected to hold along south facing shores through Friday as a new long-period south swell fills in today. Another reinforcement expected on Friday may support advisory-level conditions into Saturday before easing through early next week. Overlapping north-northwest swells will support moderate surf continuing through Friday along north facing shores. A larger north- northwest swell is expected to fill in late Saturday, resulting in near advisory-level surf for north facing shores Saturday night through Sunday. Near advisory-level surf will be possible again late Tuesday through Wednesday of next week as a long-period northwest swell fills arrives.
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.
