Our current swell is expected to continue to fade through Thursday.

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 9.03.05 PMWe expect to see a west-northwest swell build Thursday night into Friday for the Kona side. The swell is expected to peak late Friday with overhead waves. The swell should peak slightly overhead for the northeast side Saturday morning when the swell shifts.

The current south-southwest swell is expected to continue to slowly fade. 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.
