Hilo side: Wave heights are expected knee/waist high today with a downward trend.
Kona side: Wave heights waist/chest high are expected for the best breaks open to the south-southwest swell with a downward trend.
South: Wave heights waist/chest high are expected for the best breaks open to the south-southwest swell and easing throughout the day.
Our current long-period swell from the south-southwest is gradually fading through the rest of the week. A storm in the South Pacific is expected to send us another round of fun south-southwest swell starting Sunday.
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.
