The surf runs along the north and west facing coasts as a mix of medium-term, north-northwest and longer-term, west-northwest swells that move around the islands. The north-north-northwest swell should last throughout the day before subsiding into the weekend. The long-lasting west-northwest swell will fill in today and will peak early Saturday near the high surf advisory levels along the northern and western exposed coasts of smaller islands.

Surfing along the south-facing banks will continue throughout the day while the final long period, south-south-west swell, will prevail. This swell will slowly fade over the weekend, with the southern swell energy lingering mostly in the background moderately and sustaining a small south coast surf early next week.

The east-facing bank surf will remain low until the afternoon. There will be a slight surge in surf on the east coast as increased trades drive a swell of wind waves. A downtrend in East Surf is expected next week as trades weaken.
