Surf Report/Forecast


  September 17-18, 2019

Forecast through next Tuesday: 
A series of small swells from the southwest, south, and southeast will produce small surf along south facing shores through the week. The largest of these swells will be towards the end of the week, as a south-southwest swell and a southwest swell fills in Friday into Friday night. East facing shores should see a slight increase in surf during the second half of the week, as an east swell generated by Tropical Cyclone Kiko arrives. A small northwest swell will be possible late this weekend…into early next week.
