Hilo side: Wave heights chest to head high today. The best breaks could see waves a couple feet overhead on the sets early in the day.
Kona side: Surf heights are forecasted to be knee to waist high. Possibly up to chest high on the sets at the best breaks.
South: Kona side and around South Point wave heights of waist to chest high are expected.
Our current swell is expected to continue to fade through Wednesday. If the storm develops as models are indicating, we could see a west-northwest swell late this week with a reinforcement over the weekend.
The current south-southwest swell is expected to slowly fade over the next couple of days. A small new south-southwest is expected midweek. A fun sized swell is possible the middle of next week.
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.
