Surf along north facing shores will be 5 to 8 feet today, lowering to
3 to 6 feet Sunday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet today, lowering to 2
to 4 feet Sunday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet today, rising to 3
to 5 feet Sunday.

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

Outlook through Saturday March 24:
A small northwest swell will peak tonight, with another small
reinforcing northwest swell forecast to peak Sunday night. Surf will
stay below advisory levels with both of these events. A short period
northeast swell is expected to produce choppy surf along the east
facing shores from Sunday into Tuesday before a larger and longer
period northeast swell arrives Wednesday and peaks Wednesday night
into Thursday. Surf along north and east facing shores could see
advisory level surf with this swell. Surf along south facing shores
should see above null conditions for a next few days with small long
period background swells moving through.

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.
