**Click directly on the images below to make them larger. Charts include: Big Island projected winds, tides, swell direction & period and expected wave heights.**
Hilo side: Wave heights for spots exposed to the wrap are expected to be up to maybe head high at the best breaks on the sets.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today with waist high waves on the sets at the best spots at the best tides.
South: Kona side expected to get mainly wave heights under waist high.
Another northwest swell is expected to fill in Sunday and hold through early next week. A solid large northwest swell is expected to build Wednesday into Thursday. The Kona side will be largely shadowed by the other islands.
Not much expected out of the SPAC the next few days. A small swell could fill in starting Monday/Tuesday, peak Tuesday before fading back down.
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.
