Surf along north facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet this evening, and
will increase to 5 to 7 feet late tonight and Friday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 2 to 3 feet this evening, and
will increase to 3 to 5 feet late tonight and Friday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 4 to 6 feet tonight, and 3 to
5 feet Friday.

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

Outlook through Thursday April 26:
Rough, moderate surf will persist along east facing shores through
this weekend. Strengthening trades will likely cause surf to reach the
High Surf Advisory criteria along east facing shores early next week.
The current northwest swell will peak Friday, and then slowly lower
this weekend. A moderate reinforcing northwest swell arriving late
Sunday is expected to peak Monday, then gradually decline Tuesday and
Wednesday. Small south swells will maintain modest surf along south
facing shores through early 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.
