Screen Shot 2015-02-07 at 7.36.49 AMOur current swell out of the west-northwest is trending down through the day but is expected to rebound late in the day and begin an increasing trend. This swell is showing for both the Kona and Hilo sides. However, the surf is expected to be messy and disorganized and larger on the Hilo side. The secondary peak is expected Sunday morning before fading Monday.

A larger west-northwest to northwest swell is expected early next week.

Nothing to get excited about out of the SPAC. Late next week we could possibly see some fun waves from a storm developing southeast of New Zealand.

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.
