Swell Summary

Strengthening trade winds through Saturday will cause a small rise in the surf along east facing shores before trending down after Sunday. A moderate north swell will be reinforced by a new northwest swell of similar magnitude Saturday. The next significant northwest pulse won't come in until later next week Thursday. South facing shores will have small surf, but one that is slightly larger is due in Tuesday night and Wednesday of next week, resulting in small to moderate size surf.
