Swells Fading Today, A Couple on the Horizon
Alerts (as of 1:00 a.m.)
A High Surf Advisory is posted for the west side of the Big Island until 6 a.m. Friday. This advisory could be extended.
**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 shoulder/head high today. Spots without direct exposure will be smaller.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be knee/chest high today. The best breaks could get a bit bigger on the sets early in the day.
South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/shoulder high today.
Our current long period south-southwest swell is expected to continue trending down. Sunday into Monday a small southwest swell is expected to filter in with occasional rideable waves for the best exposures. Not much expected out of the SPAC anytime soon.
Our current large northwest swell will continue to slowly fade Friday. Models are showing another northwest swell around April 6th. Will keep an eye on the progress.
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.
