Swell Summary

Surf will remain well below high surf advisory levels along all shores this week. The current northwest swell will continue to slowly decline today, and hold at below season averages for the rest of the week. Trade wind wave swell energy will rebuild Wednesday and Thursday as a direct result of restrengthening trades. Low background southern hemisphere swell energy will maintain small south shore surf through the week. Higher south southwest swell energy arriving in a couple of days will provide a minor boost to southern shore surf.
