Outlook through Friday August 04:
Mid- to long period east swells from distant east Pacific
tropical cyclones are forecast to reinforce moderate choppy surf
along east facing shores from late Saturday into midweek. These
east swells will be monitored to determine the timing and the
resulting surf heights. A small mid- to long period west swell
from a distant typhoon arriving later today may provide a slight
boost in surf heights along exposed west facing shores this weekend.
A series of small southeast, south and southwest swells will maintain
small background surf along south facing shores through the middle of
next week.

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.
