Outlook through Tuesday February 25:
The current northwest will continue to subside, but will be reinforced
by a small northwest swell Wednesday. This swell will peak Wednesday
night or Thursday, then lower gradually through Friday. A slightly
larger northwest swell is expected to arrive late Friday and Friday

strengthening trade winds will likely cause surf heights on east

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.
