Swell Summary

A long-period south-southwest swell will produce elevated surf along south facing shores through Wednesday. This south-southwest swell will gradually lower from Thursday into next weekend. Small northwest swells are expected early this week, which will likely keep surf just above typical summertime flat conditions along most north facing shores into Wednesday. Breezy easterly trade winds will continue to produce slightly elevated, choppy surf along east facing shores through this evening. As the trades weaken, expect surf along east facing shores to gradually trend downward from Tuesday into next weekend.
