Swell Summary

The current north swell combined with the strong trade winds will continue to produce modest, disorganized surf along most north facing shores today. Small, short-period north and northwest swells will maintain small surf along most north and west facing shores this weekend. A larger, longer-period northwest swell may arrive on Tuesday, and potentially cause surf heights to approach the High Surf Advisory criteria along some north and west facing shores. The strong trades will keep slightly elevated, rough surf along east facing shores today. Expect the surf to gradually lower along east facing shores from this weekend into early next week as the trade winds weaken. The current small south swell will persist today, and then will gradually lower this weekend.
