Swell Summary

A small, medium period south swell combined with a small, short- period southeast swell may provide a slight boost to surf heights along south facing shores this weekend. Surf is expected to be near, or just below the seasonal average along south facing shores early next week. Surf along east facing shores will gradually lower below the normal seasonal heights through early next week due to the weakening trade winds. Surf along north facing shores is expected to remain nearly flat through the middle of next week.
