Big Island Surf Forecast
Hilo side: Wave heights are expected waist/chest high today for spots catching the NNW. The best breaks catching Nora swell could get up to shoulder/head high on the sets.
Kona side: Wave heights waist/chest high are expected today. Smaller waves are expected for spots not open to the south-southwest.
South: Wave heights waist/shoulder/head high are expected for the breaks open to the east-southeast Nora swell. Best breaks could get up to overhead on the sets.
Our current north-northwest swell is expected to maintain through the middle of the week. Small west surf generated by Choi-Wan is mixing in Tuesday for exposures open to the swell. A reinforcing north-northwest fills in Wednesday, peaks late Wednesday and fades through Thursday.
Nora is forecast to bring some east-southeast swell to the Big Island Tuesday.
Our current south-southwest swell is expected to begin to fade Tuesday.
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.
