Hilo side: Wave heights are expected to be shoulder/head high today. The best breaks could get up to a few feet overhead on the sets. Trade swell is waist/chest high.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. Out of the northwest knee/waist high waves are expected with occasional chest/shoulder high waves at the best breaks.
South: Breaks open to the swell produced by Pali are around knee/waist high today.
Our current northwest swell will continue a slow fading trend. A new northwest swell is expected to move in late Thursday maintaining wave heights around chest high to a few feet overhead at the best breaks.
Trade swell is expected to remain pretty small at waist high or less.
Swell from tropical system Pali is expected to slowly continue fading through 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.
