Hilo side: Surf heights are expected waist to chest high. The best breaks open to the swell could see wave heights up to shoulder high on the sets early in the day.

Kona side: Surf heights are forecasted from knee to waist high. Possibly chest high at the best exposures.

South: Southerly spots are below waist high today. Exposures open to the east-southeast are forecasted to get shoulder to head high surf.

Our current west-northwest swell is expected to slowly subside through the day. Unfortunately, both the Hilo and the Kona side are shadowed a bit from this swell. Still, there will be some fun little surf to be had.

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 10.56.34 PMA west-northwest swell is expected to arrive Wednesday night and the more westerly direction of this next swell may result in the Kona side of the Big Island affected by the generated surf, and may be included in an advisory.

Nothing of note out of the SPAC to get excited about.

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.
