Swell Summary

Surf in the short term will remain small for all shores into Tuesday. A slight bump in northwest swell energy will increase surf trends along north and west shores from Monday night through Wednesday. A large northwest swell is possible around middle of next week. This swell will likely bring advisory level surf along select north and west facing shores by Thanksgiving Day. Stronger trade winds developing over and upstream of the islands will bring an increase in surf along east facing shores by early next week.
