:  Surf along exposed south-facing shores will remain small throughout much of the week, mainly due to a combination of background south-southwest and southeast swell energy. An upward trend is expected from Friday through the first week of June, due to overlapping south-southwest swells. Surf along exposed east-facing shores will remain small and choppy throughout the week as the trades persist. Surf along north-facing shores will remain near the summertime average each day, with only small background northwest pulses expected, and then potentially by the weekend.
