Swell Summary

Choppy and rough surf along east facing shores will remain elevated into Saturday, then ease Sunday into early next week as the trades diminish. However, residual background easterly trade wind swell from the upstream trades will support small surf continuing next week along east facing shores. Surf along all other shores will remain small through the weekend with mainly background south to southeast energy moving through. The small northwest swell will continue to subside into the weekend. Surf along south facing shores will trend up Tuesday through midweek as a new, long- period south swell arrives.
