Outlook through Thursday March 01:
The current west-northwest swell will slowly subside into the weekend.
No other significant northwest swells are expected through the period.
An elevated trade wind swell is expected to bump surf up to advisory
levels along east facing shores by late Thursday or Friday. Surf will
continue to build through the beginning of next week, and may reach
warning levels by midweek. A small long-period south swell could
produce a small bump in surf this weekend for south 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, 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.
