Swell Summary

Surf along south facing shores will lower through Friday as a south swell moves out. A return to the summertime norm with small background swell energy is anticipated over the weekend into early next week. Surf along east facing shores will remain small due to the upstream trades being disrupted and lighter winds locally. An upward trend will be possible late in the weekend through early next week as the trades pick back up.
