Surf along north facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet this morning,
building to 5 to 7 feet this afternoon through Saturday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 2 to 3 feet this morning,
building to 3 to 5 feet this afternoon through Saturday.

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

Surf along south facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet through Saturday.

Outlook through Friday April 27:

A moderate northwest swell is expected to build today. A slightly larger
swell will peak Sunday and another moderate swell is possible next Thursday.

A series of small swells from the southern hemisphere will maintain modest
surf along south facing shores chain through this weekend. Lows in the
southern hemisphere may strengthen and shift east enough to produce some
bigger surf along south facing shores by the end of next week.

Rough surf will persist along east facing shores through Sunday night due
to the locally strong trade winds, but heights will remain moderate through
the weekend. As trade winds strengthen early next week, surf may approach
the High Surf Advisory threshold along east 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.
