New North Swell Builds Late Monday
There are no ocean alerts posted for the Big Island at this time.
**Click directly on the images below to make them larger. Charts include: Big Island projected winds, tides, swell direction & period and expected wave heights.**
Hilo side: Wave heights from waist to head high are expected, the best breaks could be slightly overhead on the sets. Surf is expected to build in the afternoon.
Kona side: Wave heights from ankle to thigh high are expected. The best spots could get waist high waves on the sets.
South: Wave heights of knee to thigh high are expected. Standout spots could get up to waist high on the sets.
A storm that just developed in the northwest Pacific could bring a solid swell around the 13th. Will keep an eye on it.
Mix of energy out of the south will linger. We may get some energy headed our way around the 13th thanks to a storm in the Tasman Sea.
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.
