Swell Summary

The large south swell that peaked on Sunday is slowly easing, but remains large to enough support advisory-level surf for south facing shores today. Heights should ease below the advisory level tonight through Wednesday as the swell moves out. No additional south swells are expected for the Thursday through Saturday time frame. A small, long period south swell is possible late this weekend into early next week.

East-facing shores will continue to see elevated short period choppy surf through today and may drop a notch tomorrow as trades weaken slightly. A small, long period east swell from tropical cyclone Estelle, located in the far eastern Pacific, may provide a slight boost in surf for east facing shores late this week into the weekend. No other significant swells are expected.
