Surf along north facing shores will build to 6 to 10 feet today, then
subside to 4 to 7 feet on Tuesday.

Surf along west facing shores will build to 4 to 7 feet today, then
subside to 3 to 5 feet on Tuesday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 5 to 7 feet today, increasing to
6 to 8 feet on Tuesday.

Surf along south facing shores will be 2 feet or less through Tuesday.

Outlook through Monday February 26:
A long period northwest swell arriving Tuesday night and peaking
Wednesday may produce surf approaching the advisory level on north and
west facing shores. This swell will gradually subside Thursday, but
another reinforcing northwest swell will move through Thursday night
and Friday before fading on Saturday. Short-period east swell will
continue to produce surf near advisory levels on east facing shores
Wednesday and Thursday, with the swell and surf building further on
those shores Friday into the weekend.

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.
