Screen Shot 2016-02-06 at 9.08.10 AMAnother 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.
