Swell Summary

Only small surf is expected through this weekend along south facing shores. A new small, long-period south swell could give south shore surf a small boost early next week. A much larger long- period south swell is forecast to arrive late next week, potentially pushing south shore surf back up around the advisory level of 10 feet.

Steady trade wind swell will keep east shore surf near, or slightly below, average levels during the next week. A small, longer period east swell associated with dissipating tropical system Estelle may give surf a small boost over the weekend. And north shore surf will remain nearly flat during the next 7 days.
