SHORES...WITH PEAK SURF HEIGHTS NEAR ADVISORY LEVEL. A NEW NORTHWEST
SWELL TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY MAY AGAIN RESULT IN WARNING LEVEL
SURF ALONG NORTH AND WEST FACING SHORES.

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...IN THE ZONE OF MAXIMUM
REFRACTION. 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.
