Surf Report/Forecast


April 7-8, 2020

Forecast through next Tuesday: 
A northwest swell will peak Tuesday night. This swell will be followed by a similar size swell from a slightly more northerly direction Thursday night, which is expected to peak Friday, then slowly lower into the weekend. Surf from both of these swells will remain below advisory level for north and west facing shores. A series of small south to southeast swells are expected this week, with surf expected to reach the summer average. Surf along east facing shores will remain small this week due to the lack of trades.
