Swell Summary

Choppy surf along east facing shores will lower slightly this weekend as the upstream trade wind fetch weakens. A new long-period south swell arriving late Friday may cause surf to peak near the summertime average along south facing shores this weekend. A series of small northwest swells will keep small surf along north and west facing shores into this weekend. A slightly larger northwest swell arriving late Sunday is expected to cause a slight bump in surf along most north and west facing shores from Sunday night into Monday. Forerunners from a moderate, long-period west-northwest swell produced by northwest Pacific Typhoon Malakas may arrive Tuesday.
