Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be waist/chest high today with the best breaks getting up to shoulder high on the sets.

Our current reinforcement holds through Thursday before fading Friday and into the weekend. New west-northwest swell is forecast to fill in late Saturday.
Near the end of the month we could see an improvement in wave conditions for southern exposures.
Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
