Swell Summary

As one northwest swell continues to fade, an overlapping new northwest swell builds into the region maintaining High Surf Advisory (HSA) conditions along exposed north and west facing shores through the afternoon. Northwest swell heights will then decline from Tuesday through Thursday. Another northwest swell arriving Friday could push surf heights back near HSA levels through Saturday.

East shore surf will be at or above seasonal average today. This east swell will peak today, and then decline later tonight through Tuesday. By midweek, expect short period trade wind swell to keep east shore surf below seasonal averages. Surf heights along south facing shores will remain small through the week.
