Swell Summary

The current small north-northwest swell is expected to maintain small surf along exposed north and west facing shores into this weekend. A new long-period north swell arriving late Sunday night will gradually build, and may cause surf to reach the High Surf Advisory threshold along most north facing shores Tuesday. The gusty trade winds will produce slightly elevated, rough surf along east facing shores through early next week. Small background surf along south facing shores will continue to gradually lower into this weekend.
