Hilo side: Wave heights are expected chest/head high with the best breaks getting up to overhead today.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be pretty flat today.
South: Breaks open to the trade swell could get up to chest/head high at the best exposures. Out of the south-southwest surf will be pretty flat.
Our current small northwest swell is expected to be down to trace amounts Thursday. A slightly better swell is expected to fill in Thursday night into Friday. A new northwest swell is forecast to fill in Sunday morning and peak in the afternoon.
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.
