Hilo side: Wave heights for spots exposed to the wrap are expected to be waist/shoulder high.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. On the sets the best spots with west-northwestern exposure could see waves in the chest high range.
South: Some spots on the Kona side may get wrap out of the west-northwest up to knee/waist high and standout spots will see chest high waves from time to time.
Our current northwest swell will continue to gradually fade and has dropped below advisory levels. Another large northwest swell is expected to arrive Sunday night and likely pushing surf heights back into advisory levels for north and west facing shores of most islands through early next week.
Not much expected out of the SPAC the next few days. A possible small swell could fill in February 8th.
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.
