Swell Summary

The trade winds will produce moderate, choppy surf along east facing shores into this evening. The trade wind swell will trend lower from Monday through mid-week due to the weaker trades. The current small south swell will gradually lower through Monday, so expect surf heights to drop below the summertime average later today. Otherwise, short- to medium-period southeast swell energy originating from the Southern Hemisphere will keep small surf along exposed shorelines through mid-week. Small west-northwest swells generated by Northwest Pacific Tropical Cyclone activity may arrive along some exposed west and north facing shores starting Thursday or Friday. However, confidence about the timing and the size of these swells remains low at this time.
