Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 9.32.21 PMOho is generating a shorter period southeast shifting east swell for the Hilo side. The swell will fade over the next few days.

Our current north-northeast is fading to leftovers for Tuesday morning. New north-northwest is expected to build Wednesday, peak Thursday and begin to fade Friday into the weekend.

Our current south-southwest holds Tuesday as a bigger south-southwest builds in and peaks late Tuesday into Wednesday and fades through the end of the 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.
