Surf along north facing shores will be 5 to 7 feet tonight and Sunday
morning, rising to 8 to 12 feet Sunday afternoon.

Surf along west facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet tonight and Sunday
morning, rising to 5 to 7 feet.

Surf along east facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet through Sunday.

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

Outlook through Saturday April 28:
A moderate northwest swell will build Sunday and peak Sunday night
but will remain below advisory levels along north and west facing
shores. Another moderate northwest swell is possible next Thursday.
Generally small to moderate surf is expected along south facing
shores through next week. Rough surf will persist along east
facing shores due to the trade winds, and build to near advisory
levels during the first half of next week as winds strengthen.

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.
