Outlook through Wednesday May 02:
A moderate, long-period north-northwest swell is expected to slowly
build Thursday afternoon and peak Friday, with surf heights remaining
below advisory levels. A larger north-northwest swell is expected this
weekend and early next week, with the potential for advisory-level
surf along north and west facing shores. This swell will gradually
diminish through the middle of next week. Choppy surf along east
facing shores will gradually diminish through Friday as trade winds
weaken. Small swells from the south will persist for most of the week,
with a peak in surf heights expected on Sunday.

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.
