Surf along south facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Thursday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 2 feet or less today, rising to
1 to 3 feet Thursday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 4 to 6 feet today, lowering to
3 to 5 feet Thursday.

Surf along north facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet today, rising to 2
to 4 feet Thursday.

Outlook through Wednesday September 27:
A small northwest swell will lead to rising surf along north and west
facing shores Thursday through Saturday. Small surf will persist along
south facing shores due to a mix of small southeast and southwest
swells. Rough surf along east facing shores will trend down over the
upcoming weekend as the trades weaken.

Surf heights are forecast heights of the face, or front, of waves. The
surf forecast is based on the significant wave height, the average
height of the one third largest waves, at the locations of the largest
breakers. Some waves may be more than twice as high as the
significant wave height. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near
any surf zone.
