Outlook through Wednesday August 23:
Rough, moderate surf will persist along east facing shores due to
breezy trade winds. Surf may trend down along east facing shores
this weekend as the trades weaken slightly. A new small
south-southeast swell is expected to slowly fill in Thursday, peak
Friday, and then gradually subside this weekend. Another small,
long-period southwest swell is forecast to arrive Saturday, and
continue into early next week. Surf will likely remain below the
High Surf Advisory criteria along all shores through early next week.

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.
