Surf along north facing shores will build to 6 to 9 feet through
tonight, increasing to 10 to 14 feet on Sunday.

Surf along west facing shores will build to 5 to 8 feet through
tonight, increasing to 6 to 10 feet on Sunday.

Surf along south facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet tonight,
increasing to 3 to 6 feet on Sunday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 5 to 7 feet tonight and 2 to 4
feet on Sunday.

Outlook through Saturday October 28:
The northwest swell arriving Sunday will peak Sunday night or early
Monday with surf near advisory level along north facing shores. A
larger northwest swell is expected to produce advisory level surf
along north, and possibly west, facing shores Tuesday and Wednesday.
An even larger northwest swell is possible toward the end of the week
that may produce warning level surf. The south swell will persist into
Monday with surf near the advisory level.

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.
