Swell Summary

Rough surf will continue along east facing shores through the weekend, then lower early next week as the trades weaken. Surf along south facing shores will hold near the summertime average today, then dip below Sunday through early next week as a small, south swell moves out. Summer conditions will continue along north and west facing shores, with only a slight chance of an increase in surf late next week from a potential small, west-northwest swell.
