...HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR EAST FACING SHORES...

Surf along north facing shores will be 8 to 12 feet tonight, lowering
to 6 to 8 feet Wednesday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 6 to 10 feet tonight, lowering
to 3 to 6 feet Wednesday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 6 to 8 feet through Wednesday.

Surf along south facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet through
Wednesday.

Outlook through Tuesday January 30:
Although trades will trend down and become light through the second
half of the week, the easterly swell will likely hold and continue
to generate near advisory level surf for east facing shores through
Friday. A mix of small north and west-northwest swells will be
possible Thursday through the weekend, which will support small surf
for 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, 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.
