Swell Summary

Small background surf will persist along south facing shores through early Friday morning. A new, slightly larger south swell, which is expected to arrive late Friday, will likely cause surf along south facing shores to return to near the summertime average from Friday night through this weekend. This south swell is expected to gradually diminish early next week. As the trades strengthen during the next couple of days, expect choppy surf to increase along east facing shores. Therefore, surf heights along east facing shores will likely be above normal from late Friday through early next week.
