Surf Report/Forecast


 April 22-23, 2021

Forecast through next Thursday
A small to moderate northwest swell will lead to a bump in surf along north and west facing shores…declining through Friday. A small to moderate, long-period west-northwest swell is slated to arrive next Monday night and peak Tuesday…followed by a slow decline. A continuous stream of small, but long- period swell from the south and southwest will maintain small surf along south facing shores throughout the forecast period. Surf along the east facing shores will be on the rise Friday and Saturday, when the returning trades turn stronger. Expect surf to build to small to moderate heights, then diminish Monday as the trade winds weaken.
