Hilo side: Knee/waist high waves expected today for trade swell magnets. Best breaks could get up to chest high on the sets.
Kona side: Wave heights of knee/thigh high are expected for the best southerly exposures. The best breaks could get a bit bigger on the sets in the afternoon/evening.
South: Wave heights ankle/knee high early on. As new south-southwest builds some sets could get waist high or more by sunset.
Our current small southwest, south-southeast mix continues to fade. A new south-southwest swell is expected to build slowly on Friday and peak over the weekend with occasional shoulder high sets.
A new small northwest is expected to build Friday but not expected to get bigger than waist high. No significant swells on the horizon.
Small easterly swell from former Blanca is expected to. Swell is expected to hold through Friday and into the weekend up to about waist high.
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.
