Outlook through Saturday December 23:
A small reinforcing west-northwest swell is expected to peak Sunday
night into Monday morning. Surf will remain below advisory level. A
larger north-northwest to north swell is forecast to build late Monday
night and peak Tuesday night and hold into Wednesday before gradually
subsiding. Surf from this swell may approach advisory levels along
north facing shores. A larger northwest swell may impact the area late
next week. Small, moderate to long period south-southwest swells are
forecast for Monday night through Thursday night, providing a small
bump to surf along 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.
