Swell Summary

A small reinforcing north-northwest swell is expected to fill in through today, followed by a small short-period north swell towards the middle of the week. Another small north-northwest swell is possible towards the end of the week. Surf along south facing shores will gradually decline over the next few days, with only background swells expected throughout this week. A small Tasman swell from the southwest is possible Thursday into Friday. Surf along east facing shores will remain relatively small due to the lack of strong trade winds.
