Swell Summary

The current northwest swell will decrease today as an overlapping northerly swell moves into the region starting this afternoon through Saturday. This new overlapping northerly swell will bring surf heights along north facing shores to near High Surf Advisory (HSA) levels by Saturday before slowly diminishing on Sunday. Northwest and north swells will slowly decrease through the middle of next week.

Strengthening trade winds will increase surf along east facing shores this weekend with a building trade wind swell. Surf will likely reach HSA levels along exposed east facing shores on Tuesday and possibly exceed High Surf Warning levels on Wednesday. Background south swells will provide small surf to south facing shores through Wednesday.
