Swell Summary

South shore surf heights will remain well above average through the weekend as two large and long period south swells move through the region. The first of these large south swells will continue to push surf heights above High Surf Advisory (HSA) levels through this evening. Surf heights will then ease a little from tonight into Friday, before another larger and longer period (20-22 sec) south swell moves into the region from late Friday through Sunday. Peak surf heights along south facing shores with this second swell will easily exceed HSA criteria (10 foot faces) by Friday night, with surf heights reaching High Surf Warning levels (15 foot faces) on Saturday and Sunday. South swell energy will gradually decrease through the first half of next week.

Surf along east facing shores will remain elevated and rough into early next week. Surf heights along north facing shores will remain flat through the week.
