Swell Summary

Moderate, rough and choppy surf will dominate east facing shore surf through through early next week. Surf along north and west facing shores will see a slight boost in surf as a small northwest swell slowly builds today, peaks late tomorrow, then slowly subsides into the weekend. Another slightly larger northwest swell will fill in late Saturday and Sunday, then slowly subside into early next week, providing an additional small boost to north and west facing shore surf. Background southerly swells will continue into tomorrow. A series of slightly larger and longer period southerly swells will boost surf heights along south facing shores beginning as early as Saturday and persist through mid week next week.
