    January 28-29, 2023

Forecast through next SaturdayThe current (310-320 degrees) northwest swell will continue to lower. A series of moderate north swells will move through the local waters into the first half of next week, helping to keep surf elevated along north facing shores. A long-period, moderate northwest swell (310 degrees) is expected to boost surf heights back to HSA levels along north and west facing shores Sunday into Monday. Surf along east facing shores should see some wrap from the north swells through early next week. No significant south swells are expected.
