Surf Report/Forecast



 December 14-15, 2018

Forecast through next Friday: 
The current northwest swell is gradually subsiding. A smaller northwest swell is expected tonight through Saturday. A new large northwest swell is expected to arrive late in the day Saturday, peaking at warning levels Sunday. Another, even larger, northwest swell is expected to build late Monday or Monday night, bringing another round of warning level surf to north and west facing shores Tuesday through the middle of next week. Strong trade winds will keep advisory level surf in place along east facing shores through Friday. Surf should drop below the advisory level by Friday night, then continue to lower over the weekend as the trades weaken.
