Swell Summary

The current south swell is forecast to peak today before gradually subsiding through Monday. With the current buoy data, surf along south facing shores is slated to be just below the high surf advisory criteria of 8 feet for today, but we will be monitoring the situation closely. There will be other smaller swells reaching our south facing shores for the rest of the week that will keep surf from going flat. A small to moderate northwest swell will be coming in today, peak Monday. A slightly smaller pulse will arrive Tuesday, peak Tuesday night, and another swell of a similar size arriving Thursday night through Friday night. With the trade winds forecast to be trending lighter in the coming days, look for surf along east facing shores to be a foot or two less than it is now. Strengthening trades Friday through Saturday will be boosting the surf up along east facing shores.
