    Big Island Surf Forecast


    Hilo side: Wave heights knee/shoulder high today.

    Kona side: Wave heights pretty flat today with some traces of south.

    South: Wave heights pretty flat today with some traces of south. A bit bigger in the evening.

    A small west-northwest is filling in and expected to peak late Tuesday before fading from Wednesday through the rest of the work week. Surf should stay below advisory levels from this swell energy.

    A series of new north-northeast swells are forecast to begin filling in Tuesday possibly bringing on High Surf Advisory conditions for east shores and maybe even north shores. Small Craft Advisories could be posted during this time too.

    Small southerly swells will continue with small background swell for south facing shores.

    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.
