HI Superferry: Surf Forecast Dec. 24-27th

Click on images to enlarge. The above images are from Surfline's LOLA model for the second half of Dec. 24, 2007, and for Dec. 26, 2007, and Dec. 27, 2007.

From Pat Caldwell/NOAA: Outlook through Thursday Dec 27. A moderate northwest swell will arrive Saturday night. A larger northwest swell will roll in Sunday night with surf above the advisory level of 15 feet for north-facing shores and near the advisory level of 12 feet for the west facing shores. A small to moderate trade wind swell will continue through next week with surf along east-facing shores staying below advisory levels. Surf heights are forecast heights of the face or front of waves. The surf forecast is based on the significant wave height in the zone of maximum refraction. Some waves may be more than twice as high as the significant wave height. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near any surf zone.

Aloha, Brad
