Surf Report/Forecast



 August 20-21, 2018

Forecast through next Monday: 
A small, north-northwest swell is expected to arrive and continue through Tuesday. A larger north swell is expected to arrive late Tuesday, peak Tuesday night and early Wednesday, then slowly lower through Thursday. Choppy surf along east facing shores will gradually increase this week as trade winds strengthen…which could result in a period of elevated surf along south facing shores around the middle of the week.
