Swell Summary

A south swell currently moving into the region will elevate south shore surf through Tuesday. Only small background south swells are expected from Wednesday through the weekend. Surf along east facing shores will hold steady through Tuesday. Wind waves will decrease on Wednesday as trades diminish, however distant tropical activity in the Eastern Pacific will send a small, medium period, east swell into the region from Tuesday night through Friday, producing a slight boost to east shore surf. Surf along north facing shores will remain nearly flat this week.
