Swell Summary

Moderate choppy surf along east facing shores will slowly trend a bit lower through Wednesday. A slight increase in the trade wind swell and surf along east facing shores will develop on Thursday and Friday as a high pressure system builds in north to northeast of the region.

A mix of minor south and southeast swells will keep small surf along exposed south shores into the weekend.

A small west-northwest swell, from tropical cyclone activity in the NW Pacific, may arrive along some exposed west and north facing shores starting on Thursday or Friday. A slight increase in surf heights along north and west facing shores is possible.
