Swell Summary

Surf along south facing shores will build through the morning hours, then peak later today or tonight as a long-period, south-southwest swell arrives and moves through. Expect this source to hold Wednesday, then ease into the second half of the week. The active spell will continue this weekend and into early next week for south facing shores as another set of long-period, south swells arrive. The peak for this episode will likely occur from Sunday through Tuesday of next week. Small, west-northwest swells may lead to a slight increase in surf along exposed north and west facing shores Wednesday through the weekend. Surf along east facing shores will trend down and remain small today through the weekend.
