**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 swell are expected to be knee/shoulder high today. Spots without direct exposure will be smaller.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today.
South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/shoulder high today.
Minimal south-southwest is expected through Tuesday. Nothing promising out of the SPAC anytime soon.
A small northwest swell leaves only trace amounts for exposures of the Big Island through the weekend. Looks like a large northwest swell could build Tuesday into Wednesday. Will keep an eye on how this progresses.
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.
